Chattooga County Commissioner Jason Winters held his monthly Commissioner’s Meeting last night at the Chattooga County Courthouse Annex in Summerville.  At the meeting the commissioner said that he had recently awarded a bid to Flegal Insurance Company of Summerville to provide insurance for county employees through Blue Cross Blue Shield of Georgia.

Winters said that the health insurance for county employees will show a 4% increase in health care costs per employee of the county.  The commissioner said that the county would absorb the increase through cost cutting measures.

AM 1180 Chattooga County Radio will broadcast the commissioner’s meeting today (Friday) at 12:50 PM and Saturday at 10:15 AM and again on Sunday evening at 5:30 PM.
