City to Decide on League Membership Next Week

hays logoAfter receiving updated numbers, the Hays City Commission will decide next week if they want to rejoin the Kansas League of Municipalities to save about $20,000 in workers compensation insurance. City Manager Toby Dougherty says the one bid received was $193,000, 12 percent higher than the current rate, and the market has shown that the rates are not likely to decrease in the future.

Workers comp insurance through the Kansas Municipal Insurance Trust and the League membership will total about $173,000, but would be prorated for April through December.
