Processing Safety Awards for Kay County employees:  Clerk Reese told about the safety awards regarding withholding retirement, social security and Medicare.  She said the county would be paying out a total of $311.13 per employee and the employee would be receiving around $221.87 out of the $250 award.  Reese said approximately $23,000 was spent last fiscal year on 91 employees and stated the funds came out of the Health Benefit account.  She told the BOCC she would like to have a sub-account titled “Safety Awards” under Insurance/Benefits to make the process easier due to the coding of the withholdings.  She told the BOCC would need to do a Transfer of Appropriations from the Health Insurance account to the new Safety Awards account. Reese said this would be a good time to make the change since Kay County is one of the BETA counties in creating the new chart of accounts for counties state-wide.
