Monona City Council Report - December 5, 2011

The Monona City Council met on Monday, December 5, 2011) and again had quite a heavy agenda. (My guess of adjournment at 11:30 p.m. was only six minutes off.)

Consideration of Resolution 11-11-1818 Adopting the 2012 Capital Budget (Mayor Miller) (Postponed 11/21/11). Passed 5-0 with numerous amendments. I'll see if I can figure out a way to report those and post it separately. We cut $156,000 from the 2012 capital budget. The total 2012 capital budget will be $4,750,401 (of which about $2.3 million is for Monona Drive. Some items that remained in the capital budget may be funded from the city's reserve funds (i.e. not borrowed), based on the large savings the city will realize on group health insurance rates.

Consideration of Resolution 11-12-1822 Selecting a Group Health Insurance Plan(City Administrator). The city has obtained three proposals for a new group health insurance carrier. Note that this item is still under negotiation, so no data on the proposals is included. Each of the three proposals would result in substantial savings over our current carrier (WPS) and would provide the same level of benefits. No action.
