Co. employees left hanging on insurance issue
County meetings don’t usually begin with heated arguments, but last Thursday’s Board of Supervisors kicked off at 5 p.m. with raised voices and pointed questions.
Immediately after Board president James Dunn called the May 15 meeting to order, he introduced benefit consultant Les Smith of Les Smith and Associates in Southaven. As Smith got up to make his way to the podium, Dunn said county officials have not heard from their insurance agent of record, Nick Floyd, even though the county’s current health insurance policy is due to lapse June 1.
“(This is) still tabled until May 28,” District 4 supervisor McKinley Daley said.
“When is the renewal date?” Dunn asked.
