Penny Vossler, GISP

Penny is the GIS Coordinator for Boone County. She completed a Master’s degree in GIS in 2013 and completed qualifications for a GIS Professional Certification in 2014. She has come a long way from her days on the farm/ranch in rural Montana. Four college degrees and stints at a HS math teacher, Associate Scientist on a NASA satellite project, software test engineer and technical writer, and cartographer have led her to her favorite job EVER - GIS! She currently serves as chair of the Iowa GIS Information Council and on the board of the Mid-American GIS Consortium.

Penny has two grown children and probably the best grandchild in the entire country – if not the world. She spends her spare time knitting, gardening, hitting the gym and reading with an occasional run on her motorcycle to clear the cobwebs.

Penny’s time at Boone County has provided countless opportunities to improve processes and create maps and APPs. She has introduced digital field data collection and implemented an online permitting system that you will hear about today.

Mike Salati Srhas been a regulator since 1986, beginning as a Buildin g Inspector in a suburb of his hometown of Syracuse, NY.  He has worked for several municipalities in Central New York as a building inspector, code enforcement officer, fire marshal, and special police officer. 

Mike came to Iowa with his family in August of 2000 to attend Bible College in Ankeny, Iowa.  Upon graduation in 2004, Mike began pastoring a Baptist Church and currently pastors Bethel Baptist Church in Carroll, Iowa.  Mike also works full time for Boone County as the Director of Planning and Development and County Sanitarian.  In the last 17 years, he has held the positions of Jailer, Reserve Sheriff’s Deputy, Environmental Code Enforcement Officer, and Sanitarian for Boone County.  Mike also served for several years as the Community Service Officer for the Boone Police Department.

Mike enjoys spending time with his wife Lori.  He has three children, and two grandchildren.  In his spare time, he enjoys hunting and marksmanship, and casting and reloading his own bullets.  He loves to serve his community and both the ministry and county have enabled him to do so.   “I like to do what I do because it is knit into my personal fabric to help people.  I like the camaraderie of working in Environmental Health.  It fosters an attitude of continual learning and there are many opportunities to work together with homeowners, contractors and other regulators to not only help them but to learn from them too.”
