COVINGTON, Ind. —
Fountain County Commissioners voted Monday to go to the county council for an additional $214,000 in the group insurance appropriation of the highway department.
This was cut from the budget when it was set for 2013, but a state official said the wheel tax and surtax weren’t taken into consideration as a source of revenue.
In other business, commissioners:
Approved a Courthouse Wellness Initiative as presented by Monica Wilhoite, a registered dietician. There will be two contests: Weight loss based on percentage and most physical activity hours logged.
Appointed Ann Nettles to the Fountain-Warren Board of Health, replacing Dr. Joseph Furr.
Fountain County Commissioners will meet at 6:30 p.m. EDT March 18 at the courthouse.
