|Ferriday council meeting heated|
There were tornado watches in Ferriday Tuesday night, but the friction was not limited to the skies.
Heated exchanges between Mayor Glen McGlothin and two aldermen, along with a outburst from an attendee in the audience, made for a tense meeting at Town Hall.
Alderwoman Gloria Lloyd said she was told by Mike Collins with Risk Management and Insurance that the town has not had liability insurance since June 2010. She said the town should not have cars on the street without liability insurance.
McGlothin said he was trying to get a local provider, but health insurance was going up $40 per person and he was having trouble finding affordable insurance. He displayed a document from Gray Insurance, nothing that the town is currently covered under a "binder" while bids are being accepted for new insurance policies.
McGlothin said the binder was essentially "temporary insurance" until the town can find a cheaper option than from RMI. He said the town has three bids for the insurance, and he hopes to have more by Friday, when he will make the decision on who to use.
"I am doing this because we have to do it," he said. "I am hoping we can get a local company to do it, but on Friday I am writing a check to someone for insurance."
