The City of Huntsville continues to move forward in efforts to balance their budget without another tax increase.
In a workshop Tuesday night, it was discussed that the City’s recommendation is to increase employee insurance premiums by 10 percent. The plan also calls for adding $100 prescription deductibles, and increasing co-pays–all geared toward a balanced budget.
The health insurance fund would be cut by $200,000. In the plan, employees would also pay for additional life insurance and long-term disability.
The City’s health insurance fund racked up a deficit of nearly $600,000 following spending over $800,000 from the fund balance.
