REMINDER Hy-Vee Simple Fix Employee Workshop #2

2017 Wellness Employee Simple Fix Workshop #2
Sign-up now to prepare 4 easy meals to take home. (Employees and/or spouses are invited).

The workshop is scheduled for November 6th at 6:30 in the Hy-Vee kitchen and will last approximately 1 hour. 

The City of Windom Wellness Program will sponsor the workshop and reduce the full participant fee of  $60 to only $20 per participant (just $5 per meal)!!!.

Hy-Vee shops for the groceries, cleans and chops all the ingredients, and provides the space, bowls and utensils.

At the workshop each participant puts together 4 recipes in a separate freezer bag that they can take home, put in the freezer and then thaw out and cook when they desire. Each meal includes a recipe, and cooking instructions.  The meals make anywhere from 4-8 servings. The purpose is to encourage cooking at home and becoming aware that it is cheaper to prepare meals than to eat out.

2018 Health Insurance Options – Employee Meetings

To: City of Windom Employees

From: Chelsie Carlson

Windom was given a 29% premium increase for 2018 Health Insurance This jump is based on claim history, medical inflation, and features of the plan we offer.  This premium increase will have a significant impact to the 2018 Budget for the City as well as a significant impact to employee cost of health insurance for 2018.

To give employees more affordable options and lesson this impact, we have asked BCBS to provide quotes for other plans and cost reducing variations to plans.  We will share that information as it is received.  

To explain the additional health plan options we have scheduled employee informational meetings on September 11th at the Community Center from 1:30 PM -2:30 PM and 3:00 PM-4:00 PM.  A representative from BCBS will be present  be explain the options and answer any questions.   Please plan to attend one of these sessions.

 

The IBEW Union will also have a meeting September 11th after 5:00 PM at the Community Center.
