ROSSFORD - City Council last week gave the administration approval to study joining a consortium that would enable the city to self-fund its health insurance.
The plan would be to work through the Ohio Public Safety Entity Healthcare Cooperative in partnership with the Jefferson Health Plan.  
"Our intent is to allow us to explore that option," City Manager Ed Ciecka said.
While the plan would not result necessarily in savings, he said, it could serve to moderate future increases in the cost of employee health benefits.
School board member Jackie Brown, who was in the audience, asked about upfront costs to join.
Ciecka said the proposal the city was looking for did not require it to make an upfront payment to the consortium's reserve fund.

The annual Classics on Main Car Show rolls into Bowling Green on July 12. This year, the event organizers are adding social media games to the mix of free family fun the show offers.
The first game has already begun, with the challenge to exhibitors and fans to "show us your T-shirt" from past car shows. The game is a contest to garner the most "likes" on Facebook. The prize is $25 in Downtown Dollars, the gift certificates issued by the Downtown Bowling Green organization and honored by more than 70 Bowling Green businesses.
There is no fee to enter. Photos must be tagged #ClassicCarsBG and posted on the entrant's own Facebook page. The contest ends at 5 p.m. on July 10 and the person who garners the most likes by that time wins the prize.

The program is a leak detection and notification system where customers manage and can control water usage.
"AquaHawk is an amazing system where you are notified of problems, and in my opinion, the best feature is to set up a monthly budget to reduce usage and save money on utility bills," district President Jerry Greiner stated.
