Commission quickly tackles their agenda
by Ashley Murphy

Monday, October 18, 2010

The Bradley County Commission met this morning and got right down to business with issues at hand. Commissioner Mark Hall brought forth a recommendation from the Insurance Committee to make no changes to the current employee insurance offerings.

Commissioner Connie Wilson questioned possible cheaper alternatives. Hall responded saying a family plan is currently set in place at $370 per month. This is an 80/20 plan where the insurance company will pay 80% and the holder will pay 20%. This plan consists of a $600 deductible.

Commissioner Adam Lowe pulled item B dealing with amendments to the qualifications on the Audit Committee from the agenda for further discussion.

Lowe continued by bringing up the pumping station located in a trailer park on Michigan Avenue that has been giving many residents along Wilkerson Creek much grief. He stated that there is currently a $60,000 impass between Cleveland Utilities and the State of Tennessee, adding that this matter is out of the county's hands, but he wants commissioners to stay abreast of the situation.

On the regular agenda, commissioners passed a proclamation honoring County Engineer Sandra Knight for her accomplishments, they approved to quickclaim interests in Halle's Corner ROW and also passed a proclamation on the BuyIt Bradley program.

The Bradley County Commission will meet again on Monday, October 25, 2010 at 7 p.m. for a work session.
