The Lincoln County Board of Commissioners met Tuesday, Aug. 6 for their regular meeting. All members were present at the beginning of the meeting, but Commis­sioner Rick Hamer had to leave early for an ap­pointment.
Risk Management Con­sultant Don Daraskev­ich of MCIT spoke to the board about managing county risk, especially in the area of Work­man’s Comp. According to Daraskevich, MCIT is a risk management service and was established for the purpose of providing property, liability, auto and worker’s comp ser­vices to government and public entities. They were established in 1979 and Lincoln County is a mem­ber of MCIT. Because the county is a member, they will receive a dividend from MCIT.
