Court takes no action on deduction request for now

By Roxanne Thompson, Staff Writer

A representative of an insurance company made a presentation at Limestone County commissioners court’s May 23 meeting, requesting the county make automatic payroll deductions to pay the insurance company’s premiums for county employees who request it, but commissioners took no action to fulfill his request.

Groesbeck’s Sam LeNoir, an independent insurance contractor for National Farm Life Insurance, made the presentation, saying that he had a payroll deduction program in Freestone County. He said he had done business with some county employees for as long as 20 years, and he wanted to make paying the premiums easier for county employees.

LeNoir pointed out that his insurance program would not cost the county anything beyond the efforts of County Treasurer Carol Picket, who handles the payroll, to set up the line item deduction. He mentioned other benefits of the policy, such as its portability and its liberal underwriting requirements – and he noted that the insurance was voluntary.
