•Category 3, which Corey said would probably apply to most of the local organizations and businesses in Minerva, applies to raffles where the proceeds from a single raffle do not meet or exceed $5,000 and the total for the calendar year will not meet or exceed $20,000.
During special meetings held on Sept. 26 and 27, the board met to discuss health insurance issues and consider benefit plans from Jaeger & Flynn Associates and Burnham Benefit Advisors, respectively. Both companies presented a variety of plans, including ones that featured higher premium and lower deductibles and others that featured lower premiums and higher deductibles.
The two types of plans offer advantages to different groups of people. People who have more health care costs would benefit from a higher premium plan, while those with generally low health care costs would benefit from a lower premium plan.
“We are focused on making sure we contain health insurance costs while maintaining the quality of health care benefits that our employees already have,” Corey said.
Based on questions and feedback during the meetings, both companies will be revising the plans that were reviewed and will meet with the board again to present the revised plans.
