County Clerk, Rebecca Rossell, reported that there are approximately 21 non-union county employees that will be impacted by the change in the billing cycle for Blue Cross/Blue Shield dental/health insurance. Employees that pay a portion of the premium for spouse/children/family will now have to pay the premium at the beginning of the month rather than the end of the month. In order to minimize the financial impact the County Board will consider a resolution that will break the initial first monthly payment at the beginning of the billing cycle into a 12 month repayment plan. This will coincide with repayment plan for the F.O.P. union employees.

Hear concerns from Elected Officials, Department Heads and their representative.
