City to study health insurance plan
“We’re anticipating health care costs nationwide to rise 11 percent on average,” Hollingswortth said. “If you don’t peck away at this problem a little bit at a time, you’ve got to hit your workers with a 25 or 30 percent increase, and we don’t want to go there.
We want to have small increases every year to stay in good, solid financial condition.”
Hollingsworth said it has been a while since they have looked at the health care plan, and the city is searching for a consultant to get some additional input.
