Insurance Won't Be Renewed Carroll County's workmen's compensation and general liability insurance will not be renewed June 1. the Board of Supervisors was told Monday. In a message from the Carroll County Association of Independent Insurance Agents, the board was informed that its insurance company, Hawkeye-Security Insurance Co., is canceling all of its city and county policies. The board decided to resurface a two-mile stretch of road directly north of Breda.. next year instead of the planned 1977. The asphalt work was moved up because similar work will be done in the area and County Engineer Martin Schmeiser thought it would be cheaper to do the work while machinery is in the area. The action required a change in the county's five-year road plan, which must be approved by the Iowa Department of Transportation. Third quarter reports from the auditor, recorder, sheriff and clerk of court offices were approved, as was a semi-annual report from the treasurer's office. All are on file in the auditor's office for inspection. The board set April 20 as the date for bid letting for various grading and asphalt resurfacing work and for purchase of culvert pipes. Notice to bidders will be by publication. Confirmation At Dedham Timcl Herald Newi Service DEDHAM — The Most Rev. Frank H.
