In a separate matter, the commissioners unanimously approved distributing $4,000 to each volunteer fire department in Clark County, paid out of its share of a timber distribution it received two weeks ago from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Forestry.
COUNTY EMPLOYEES TO RECEIVE REIMBURSEMENT
The commissioners voted unanimously to cut reimbursement checks to eligible county employees for overpayments on health-care coverage during the 2011 plan year.
The county will issue $41,274 back to the employees. The Affordable Care Act mandates that medical insurance providers pay no more than 20 percent of premiums on administrative costs.
CARL POPP RIDGE RECOMMENDATION WITHDRAWN
The commissioners voted 2-0 with Perkins abstaining, to withdraw a recommendation made by the previous commissioners to rename a portion of St. Joe Road to Carl Popp Ridge Road in Sellersburg.
Perkins and former commissioners Ed Meyer and Les Young voted to make the recommendation at the last meeting of 2012. The Clark County Planning and Zoning Commission tabled the recommendation at a subsequent meeting.
