By Ed Waggener
The Adair County Fiscal Court delayed a decision on what company and what agency will carry county government's health insurance program this, but proceeded with a vote to help underwrite a fireworks program at the former Adair County Fairgrounds, hired a new permanent employee at the Green River Animal Shelter, approved budget line-to-line transfers, and approved a first reading of a 2017-2018 budget amendment.
Adair County Judge Executive Michael Lee Stephens presided, with all member of Fiscal Court present.
Court hears extensive presentations of health insurance proposals
The court heard from several health insurance agents offering multiple plans from several insurance providers including United Health Care, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, Humana, and Aflac, but because of the complexity of the programs, magistrates were given packets detailing the proposals to study, and Treasurer Melinda Quinn will be doing an analysis with a recommendation or options expected to be presented at a June Special Called Meeting, which will be announced later.
Court approves $2,750 for 4th of July Fireworks Program
The court voted to underwrite the 2017 Fourth of July Fireworks program, which will be held at the Lindsey Wilson College/Fairgrounds property. The court's contribution to the program will be $2,750. Other contributions are expected from the City and two banks, Community Trust Bank and the Bank of Columbia, have pledged $1,000 to the program. The program is contingent on a number of details being completed, the biggest of which appears to have a safe storage area.
The contract award, contingent on details, goes to Casey Creek Pyrotechnics, owned by Nick Bright and Jeremy Wethington. The company has provided pyrotechnics for 10+ years for Thunder over Casey Creek, and for three years at Revisit Knifley Celebration. The show will feature approximately 500 shells, and will last approximately 12-15 minutes. The vote on the matter was unanimous, on a motion by Terry Hadley (District 7) with a second by Sammy Baker (3).
Fulltime employee hired for Green River Animal Shelter
Brittany Burton was hired as a full time employee, at $9.25 an hour at Green River Animal Shelter. At the Courts Regular Session, Tuesday, May 09, 2017, Tammy Campbell was promoted to Director of the Green River Animal Shelter, succeeding Kim Tucker, who resignation is effective May 19, 2017.
