NEWS AND TRIBUNE BRIEFS — For Feb. 21

CASI hosting community forums

Community Action of Southern Indiana in Jeffersonville has been awarded a grant through the Indiana Association of United Ways to help facilitate the implementation of the Affordable Care Act in Clark, Floyd, Jefferson, Harrison and Washington Counties.

The first of the community forums will be from 6 to 7 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 25, at Community Action of Southern Indiana, 1613 E. Eighth Street, Jeffersonville. Another community forum will be from 6 to 7 p.m. March 19 at New Albany Housing Authority’s Community Room, 300 Erni Ave., New Albany.

CASI will be educating about the Affordable Care Act and health insurance options, including the new Health Insurance Marketplace. Certain individuals or families may qualify for health insurance subsidies, based on income. Others may qualify for a $0 premium plan or a new kind of tax credit that lowers premiums right away.

NEW ALBANY

Severe weather sirens installed

Two new severe weather sirens have been installed, tested, and are operational, the city of New Albany confirmed Thursday.

The new sirens have been placed at Bicknell Park and the Spring Street fire station, and the Floyd County Emergency Management Agency oversaw the testing of the sirens earlier this week.

The sirens were footed by the New Albany City Council at the request of Councilman Greg Phipps.
