MEIGS, GA - The City of Meigs is in danger of losing its insurance.
The current carrier will cancel the coverage November 15th.
 The mayor says the company sees Meigs as too much of a risk after having to pay settlements with five former employees who resigned and sued the city.

"We can't hardly meet the bills already," said Linda Eason Harris, Mayor of Meigs. "So if there's an accident or something, we just can't have city employees uninsured.  The city can't go uninsured at all because we don't have money to pay anybody if someone gets hurt."

The City Manager says a local agency and the Black Mayor's Caucus are getting bids from other companies and will present three options to the city soon.
