Road commission to hold special meeting Dec. 31

Posted

WEST BRANCH — The Ogemaw County Road Commission will be hosting a special meeting Dec. 31 to discuss retiree health insurance.

The Herald learned of the meeting through a posting on the road commission’s website.

Board Chairman Van Sheltrown said the meeting will be held to discuss whether retiring commissioner Mark Williams could remain enrolled in the road commission’s medical insurance with Williams paying 100 percent of the cost.

According to road commission minutes, retirees from the road commission, which include commissioners who have completed three terms (18 years) are entitled to purchase healthcare at their expense.

Williams started on the board January 2007 and had served two terms before losing his re-election bid to Klint Marshall in the November general election.

Sheltrown said road commissioner wages and benefits, by state law, are set by the county board of commissioners.

The meeting is scheduled for 10 a.m., Dec. 31, at the road commission offices.
