Discussed public hearing to be held tomorrow night for the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program. A vote is planned by the commission on 10/31/2022.
Met with Dennis Talley and Michelle Heitz, Mid MO Insurance to discuss building and auto insurance renewal for 2023.
Our current carrier, AmeriTrust, do not want to renew with counties due to loss ratio so we were informed we will need to seek another carrier for 2023. In the mean time Dennis has noted that our 2022 loss ratio is very low so AmeriTrust is reconsidering. Mid MO Insurance will go out for bid with 3 other carriers, as we might have a better option available, and AmeriTrust may decide firmly not to renew.
