She feels that some County employees <br />are receiving health insurance benefits who are also working part-time; and she questioned <br />the eligibility of the County Commissioners who are receiving such benefits. <br /> <br />I The County Auditor stated that a policy was set by the County Commission in 1970 <br />which states that only full-time County employees will be eligible to join the group <br />health insurance plan. A full-time employee was then defined as one who works a <br />minimum of 30 hours per week. Mrs. Stanton felt that the County was following policy <br />where Donna Lays is concerned, but she stated that the question remains whether the <br />policy was followed in regard to the County Commission. <br /> <br />Arch. auth. to <br />advertise for <br />bids on tower <br />restoration <br /> <br />i Mr. Eckert felt that the Commission should be regarded the same as a number of other <br />i elected officials where the law does not say anything about the number of hours they have <br />! to work but assuming that they are considered full-time. This matter will be addressed <br />! again when all five Commissioners are present. <br />I <br />I <br />Architects Irv Holman and Richard Moorhead presented drawings and specifications <br />for the restoration of the Courthouse bell tower area.
