Hike in health insurance will alter county budget

Email

WILLMAR -- The Kandiyohi County Board of Commissioners was all set to approve a slim and trim budget and levy on Tuesday, but the bill the county received on Monday for the 2010 employee health insurance coverage changed that.

The county had budgeted a 10 percent increase for insurance rates for next year, said Administrator Larry Kleindl. Instead, insurance coverage is increasing 12 percent. That increase is a difference of $60,000.
