The Trion Town Council voted on Thursday evening to adopt the new health insurance policy for city employees that included an increase in premiums. The town will continue to pay 50% of an employees health insurance and the employee will be responsible for the other half.
Also, the Trion Town Council voted to go ahead with a CDGB (Community Development Block Grant) for infastructure improvement to the town’s water system. Counciman Johnny Simmons stated that he would like to see the mayor and town council pick the area for the improvements instead of allowing the area to be designated to the town. The council indicated that the improvements, if they receive the grant, would be in the Frogtown area of Trion.
