By Wainwright Jeffers - bio | email LEESBURG, GA (WALB) – An increase of 2.9 percent in nationwide insurance premiums means a hike in premiums for Lee County employees.
That was one of the issues addressed at a special called commission meeting.
Commissioners considered a recommendation for the increase and approved it. They'll stay with the same provider.
A single person's premium will increase $22 dollars, families will see a $43 dollar increase.
It's the first hike in four years, commissioners say it's still a good deal.
"This is still a Cadillac plan, if you want to call it that, with a very low premium, and we have one of the best plans in the state of Georgia," said Ed Duffy, Lee County Commission.
The commission also agreed to use $3,100 to help supplement the purchase two new Ford-F150's for the Sheriff's office.
