Stanford council meets on holiday
to discuss health insurance
STANFORD - City Council members met on New Year's Day to ring in 2004 with discussion on health insurance bids.
The city's contract with Bluegrass Family Health ends Feb. 1, and council members voted last year to bid out the 2004 contract after the company increased its price by several thousand dollars per month.
The lowest bid was $6,977 per month, still $400 more than what the city is currently paying. Mayor Eddie Carter estimated it to be about a 6 percent increase.
The bid will be discussed further and voted on during a special meeting at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Stanford Fire Station.
