Supporting the Mayor’s Executive Order Establishing the Health Care Program Task Force

This Resolution is being presented by City Council for Council’s review and approval. If approved, Council would be supporting the creation of a Health Care Task Force to review the quality and cost of the City’s health care program for its employees. The Resolution says the City has experienced a considerable increase in the cost of providing health care services making it is imperative that the health care program be reviewed for cost-effectiveness while maintaining a quality health care program. The Task Force was created by a Mayoral Executive Order on July 15, 2016 and has already begun to meet to explore a variety of issues related to the City’s health care program for its employees.
