Board denies sheriff's health insurance request
Outgoing Goodhue County Sheriff Dean Albers will have to do without county health insurance when he retires at the end of the year.
The 54-year-old sheriff's request for three years of individual health insurance was denied Thursday in a 3-2 vote by the County Board.
"I congratulate the sheriff on a great job, but I think this is not the time to be expanding packages," said Commissioner Ron Allen, who voted with Jim Bryant and Ted Seifert against granting the benefits.
