June 9-- The Montgomery County Commission is renewing the county's health insurance with Blue Cross/Blue Shield under an umbrella policy with the Georgia Association of County Commissioners.
County manager David Curry says the premium is going up $48 per month per employee. It will cost the county $463 each month for each of 28 employees for an annual cost of $155,568.
The commission also approved a final design for a new county sheriff's office in a county-owned building on the square in Mount Vernon. Curry says the county will advertise for bids within seven days.
