Insurance decision postponed
Recommendations made by committee chair Joyce Huntington called for retired jurors — who are currently eligible to have their medical and dental insurance paid by the Police Jury — to pay their own premiums or be dropped from the Jury’s policy.
“Ex-police jurors should not get health benefits because the Police Jury was not their primary job,” Huntington said. “They should be dropped off of the policy.”
The measure would save the parish about $34,000 a year, Huntington said.
Six retired police jurors currently participate in the parish insurance program.
