Resident complains about speeding along Green Valley

Prescription savings program approved




Prescription Savings

The commissioners approved a prescription savings program, sponsored by the National Association of Counties.

Floyd County Councilman Brad Striegel and Floyd County Recorder Lois Endris made a presentation on the program prior to the vote and encouraged the commissioners to approve the program.

Anyone who works in Floyd County is eligible to participate. When they pick up a prescription at participating pharmacists and use a member card, the county will receive $1 for every prescription filled. 

It doesn’t cost the county any money to participate and Endris will be the county’s point person. The program is also good for pet prescriptions. The money will go into the county’s general fund. Endris said several counties participate in the program and Marion County recently banked $12,650 during one month.

The next step will be to publicize the program to Floyd County employers.


Parks Appointment

The commissioners appointed Tom Millea to the Floyd County Parks Board. Millea is a former board member of the New Albany-Floyd County Parks Board which split late last yearn 


This story has been updated to correct Lois Endris' title. Endris was originally refered to as the Floyd County auditor.
