Glynn budget falls short in health care costs

SEGAZINE

Less than a week after county administrators released Glynn County’s recommended budget for the 2014-2015 fiscal year, commissioners were faced with a sharp increase in costs for employee health insurance — a change that will affect both this budget year and the next.

County administrator Alan Ours told commissioners Tuesday that his office discovered a shortfall of more than $1 million while updating the costs for a projection last week. In March, he said, the costs were only 8 percent ahead of budget.

“If you put the expenses for this fiscal year on a graph, we are right on budget through March,” Ours said. “But … we’ve had some very sick employees and dependants, and that has taken off.”
