The city will pay $600,000 for insurance coverage for its employees. The figure is the same as last year. Changes include no employee contribution but deductibles will raise to $4,000 for single and $8,000 for family. Employees do have a Health Reimbursement Account.
The coverage includes health, dental, vision, hearing and life.
Council also got its first look at the 2013 budget from City Auditor Tom Jettinghoff with total appropriations of $16,157,835. Jettinghoff said some of the figures will be changed before council hears second reading on Dec. 3.
The Maintenance Department is looking to hire an assistant foreman from within the current workforce. Council approved a salary range of $1,766.60-$1,850.54 per bi-weekly pay period. If the job is not filled from within by June 30, the position will be eliminated.
