Fiscal Court hears first reading for SPEDA ordinance – Commonwealth Journal’s History

• approved the yearly Solid Waste management plan.

Pulaski County Fiscal Court is moving forward with an effort to reorganize economic development with the first reading of an ordinance to formally create a new Somerset Pulaski Economic Development Authority.

• approved the inclusion of a lower cost alternative health insurance plan. Agent Bill Neikirk noted that, with the recent withdrawal of Anthem from Pulaski County, some of the county’s 250 employees would be forced to pick another plan. A meeting has been scheduled for 6 p.m. next Monday evening for employees needing to learn more about their insurance options.

The court had last month approved an interlocal agreement with the City of Somerset to create the new organization, which is to be comprised of eight directors — the Somerset Mayor, the County Judge-Executive (both serving as long as they are in office), three directors chosen by the mayor and approved by city council, and three directors chosen by the judge and approved by fiscal court (all six serving no more than two staggered, four-year terms consecutively).
