Following a short regular session on Monday morning, July 18, 2022, the Williams County Commissioners went into Executive Session “for matters to be kept confidential.”
Also present in the Executive Session were Melissa Bodey from CEBCO and Mike Kurivial from First Insurance. There was no action taken after the ES, but Ms. Bodey was given the floor to address the commissioners.
She presented them with a check for $3000, “to be spent by Williams County, any way you would like.”
She explained for the record that the money came from Anthem, was provided to CEBCO and it was decided by CEBCO to pass it on to all of the counties with which they work.
“It was for confusion and inconvenience that was created by ID cards at open enrollment time,” she clarified. “There was a great deal of confusion. I do not believe Williams County was hit very hard with it, because we didn’t make any plan changes, but you still profit.”
In other business, the Commissioners voted to approve:
-Resolution 196 Determining to proceed with submitting, to the Electors of Williams County, the Question of a Renewal Tax Levy for Construction and Maintenance of Improvements and Expenses of Soil and Water Conservation District Programs under Chapter 1515 of the Revised Code as authorized by Ohio Revised Code Section 5705.19
