The BoW asked Chasteen to use the insurance settlement of $11,612 and some money in the Department’s equipment fund to pay for the bulk of a $25,854 Ford SUV and to determine whether the remainder of about $7,500 could be taken from another fund. If not, Chasteen may have to come back to the BoW to figure out how to pay for the remainder.
The BoW on Monday also:
Approved to purchase a health care service, Consult-a-Doc, for all of its employees and their dependents. The service will cost the city about $6,500 for one year, and will give employees and their dependents access to a physician, by phone, online or Skype, around the clock. Scott Chasteen, a member of the insurance committee, said he expects the service to save the city some money because some employees are incurring significant costs for trips to doctors or the emergency rooms for conditions that can be handled with a prescription that the Consult-a-Doc can prescribe over the phone.
Agreed to adjust a sewer bill for a customer who owns an unoccupied rental home in which the water pipes burst. When the pipes burst, about 41,000 cubic feet of water rushed into the home and spilled into the yard. The sewer bill reached about $1,400, but the BoW agreed to reduce the amount to about $14, as the water did not enter the sewer. The home’s owner still may face paying a water bill of about $938.
