Special North Apollo Borough Council met in special session at 6:30 PM in the conference room

Session of the municipal building with the Pledge of Allegiance led by President E. Burns. The meeting was called for the purpose of taking necessary action regarding the Borough’s Workers Compensation Insurance and for consideration of any other business duly brought before Council. Members present were E. Burns, E. Hall, and T. Newton. Absent were E. Barclay and W. Campbell. Also present were Sec’y E. Stitt and Insurance Agent Connie Jerich.


Jerich Connie Jerich explained that the Borough’s Workers Compensation Insurance had to be

Explains changed because coverage for the fire department is no longer available from most companies. Three proposals were received. The least expensive was a combination of EMC Insurance for the Borough’s coverage and the State Workers Insurance Fund for the fire department. The total premium would be $16,426.00. That is about $5,000.00 more than the previous policy due to recent claims history. An advantage to this plan is that the fire department and Borough would be treated separately and claims of one outfit would not affect the premium of the other. Motion was made by T. Newton, seconded by E. Hall, to accept the proposal that would divide the coverage between EMC Insurance and the State Workers Insurance Fund fr a total of $16,426.00 – ayes 3, nays 0.
