In other business:
Commissioners heard from Marcey Phillips, of Healthy Balance, about the county's Wellness Program. Phillips has concerns that only about 20 percent or 40 people are currently involved and some of those are losing interest. Phillips would like to offer incentives to increase participation, by offering cash prizes when participants reach goals.
However, the county can't do that without approval of the state board of accounts. So the commissioners will meet with the insurance committee and discuss the options available and meet again with Phillips to discuss available options.
