Healthcare contributions discussed in Norfolk

NORFOLK

Jim Lehan, chairman of the board of selectmen, said he doesn’t know whether the town will be able to increase its contributions toward employees’ health insurance plans.

The town currently pays 58 percent of the costs, and the Insurance Advisory Committee asked selectmen Monday to increase that number to 60 percent. "We agree with them philosophically," Lehan said. "The problem is that 2 percent would cost us $40,000."
