June 1--  Toombs County officials are considering options regarding health insurance for county employees.

At a called meeting Wednesday morning, the county commissioners asked county manager Doug Eaves to give them more cost information before a decision is made.

One proposal increases the county's annual premium for 158 employees by about 23 percent to just over a million dollars.  

A second option would cost the county about $165,000 less but would increase the out-of-pocket expenses for employees.

The commissioners say they want to see the financial impact on all employees before they vote.
