The Board of Aldermen held a Special meeting Friday March 4, 2011 at 7:30 PM. Those present included Mayor Calvin Wilson, Alderpersons Greg Richmond, Keith Kohley, Kevin Reardon, and Kristin Lett. Also, present were City Clerk Paula Brodie and Chief of Police Tom West. Guests included JR Fisher.
The Mayor called the Special meeting to order. He noted that the meeting was called to discuss the City’s Health Insurance Coverage.
The clerk recommended Option Blue Preferred Plus Option 3 with RX Option D. She stated that she felt it would be a fair compromise for both the City and the employees. It will cost the city $167.88 more a month with a total of $1.678.80 for the last 10 month of 2011. It will raise the cost of prescriptions, Doctor’s visits and include a $1,000 in network deductible, all of which will be paid by the employees.
The clerk noted that the City is now receiving franchise fees from all cellular companies. For the first 3 months of this year the city has received $4,657.74. She stated that this additional revenue would help pay the increased premium.
Ald Richmond moved to approve Option Blue Preferred Plus Option 3 with RX Option D. Ald Kohley seconded. Those Alderpersons voting aye were Richmond, Kohley, Reardon and Lett. There were no nay votes.
Ald Kohley moved to adjourn. Ald Lett seconded. Those Alderpersons voting in favor were Richmond, Kohley, Reardon and Lett. There were no nay votes.
Calvin Wilson, Mayor
