In regard to the truck and equipment bids that were opened on February 10th, Chairman DeMet indicated that the Town does not have to take the lowest bid, and that bidding is not actually required.

Town of Lake Tomahawk Special Town Board Meeting, November 3, 2015

The Lake Tomahawk Town Board held a Special Town Board Meeting on Tuesday, November 3, 2015 at 4:00 PM in the Raymond F. Sloan Community Center.

Present: Chairman DeMet, Supervisors Catherine Parker and Matthew Michalsen, Clerk Nancy Schneider and Doug Rehm. Also in attendance was Charlie Quimette, Agent, from Wisconsin Benefit Planning, Inc.

DeMet called the meeting to order and the Agenda was read. Motion by Parker, seconded by DeMet to approve the Agenda of November 3, 2015. Motion carried, all ayes.

DeMet asked Charlie if he was aware of Greg’s situation having turned 65. Charlie said Greg could still stay on the plan with medicare. The group plan would be secondary. He doesn’t have to take a supplement, but could stay on the current plan with medicare but it would be more expensive. It would be better if Greg got a supplement with medicare. He could still have a reimbursement amount. Charlie went on to say that he markets the account every year and the prices that he gave us were the best price he received. Parker said that WPS was a non-ACA plan and the other quotes were ACA Plans. What if anything did this mean? Charlie said the ACA Plan is based strictly on age and not on gender or any other factors. Our current plan is getting closer to an ACA plan as our crew is getting older. Parker asked what the benefit would be if the town went to an ACA plan. Charlie said there would be no benefit for the town. A private firm could get a tax credit but the Town is not eligible for a tax credit. WPS is nation wide so the employee would not be out of network.

DeMet felt that the current plan for Scott and Doug is the best plan. Greg would still need a drug plan and he could get Senior Care for $35 a year. If the Town switched to Security Health Plan and continued to cover Greg the rates would be higher than WPS. The current plan will automatically renew December 1st. Parker made a motion that the decision on the insurance be tabled until after they talk to Greg. DeMet seconded the motion. Motion carried, all ayes. Michalsen made a motion to adjourn, seconded by
Parker. Motion carried, all ayes.
