City, Police deliberate over pay, vehicle requests

C.L. Watson, Citizen Correspondent

The Chiefland City Commission on July 9 received an insurance bid presentation for city employees from Mike Michaelis with Don Martin Insurance.

Michaelis presented a rate increase proposal of 7.7 percent with Florida Blue Plan 59 as the base plan for city employees. Most of the plans offered cover a full-time City employee at no cost, under Plan 59, yet a family plan would cost the employee $1,001.24, a weekly increase of $18.33. Aetna and AvMed declined to send offers saying they would not have competitive rates. The Chiefland City Commission voted unanimously in favor to accept the Florida Blue rate increases.
