 Commissioner’s health insurance was not paid by the county until voted in by the board  of Carl Pennamon, Charles Hill, Russell Bennett, Jerry Crow, and Greg Wyatt. 

 
Comm. Bernard has made an issue of wanting better health insurance which really means he doesn’t want to pay a $2,000 deductible.  The county is paying all of his health insurance premium and ½ of his wife’s, just like they do for all employees.  That’s not enough for Comm. Bernard.  Today in the budget session Comm. Bernard convinced Comm. Cox, Comm. Hill, and Comm. Pennamon that $150,000 should be moved out of contingency and into personnel benefits so higher health insurance premiums could be paid to lower the deductible.  It seems to be OK to cut the hospital, library, 911, and everything else, but Comm. Bernard can still spend money to help himself.
