Albany - Dougherty County Commissioners still have not decided whether to increase insurance premiums for retirees. The proposed insurance plan for next year has no increase in premiums for active employees, but a 10% increase for all retirees and a 50/50 split on premiums for retirees under 65.

Monday, Commissioners agreed to table the issue until they gather more information.   Lamar Hudgins says, "We just want to be deliberate and be sure that if we do increase those premiums that we have no choice."

Commissioners are trying to work out a plan that will limit the amount retirees must pay out of pocket without creating a deficit.
