The First Meeting
|Lenoir City Council met Monday for their first real
official business meeting with newly elected mayor, Tony Aikens and
councilmen Jim Shields and Harry Wampler behind the table.
One of the more interesting issues decided by council was a change in the employee health benefit costs. Mayor Aikens recommended that beginning in January any new employees hired will be required to pay for a portion of their health insurance. A new employee would pay 10% of the cost of a single policy or 20% on a family policy. There would be no change for current employees who currently have 100% of their health insurance premium paid by the city.
Overall the meeting went smooth with business as usual.
