Medical enrollment forms for town council employees

We're waiting for John W. Milner to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Old Bridge Township,

This is a request for public records made under OPRA and the common law right of access. I am not required to fill out an official form. Please acknowledge receipt of this message.
Records requested:
Medical enrollment forms from 2018 for each town council employee who enrolled in the state medical plan.

Yours faithfully,

John W. Milner

Good Afternoon Mr. Milner,

 

The Township is diligently working on collecting the documents requested
in your OPRA Request.  Unfortunately, due to an unexpected absence, the
Township needs to request an extension of an additional seven (7) days,
making the new due date Wednesday, September 17^th 2019, instead of
Friday, September 6^th 2019.  As soon as your requested documents are
ready, they will be transmitted to you via e-mail as request.

 

Thank you for your understanding in this matter and I appreciate your
patience.

Good Afternoon,

 

The Township received your request for “Medical enrollment forms from 2018
for each town council employee who enrolled in the state medical plan” for
which there are no records responsive to you request as the Township does
not participate in the State Medical Benefits Plan nor does the Council
have any employees.

Dear Bonnie Brookes,

It is my understanding that our town councilmen receive medical benefits. In April 2018, they made a change to allow this. In February they initially voted against this, in March the vote was reversed when the counsel president called the mayor and asked for his help to turn the vote, and in April the deal was done. In fact, a list of town council medical bills were paid for recently, all on one invoice, and I would like to request this bill, too. Please help me with this.

Yours sincerely,

John W. Milner

Good Morning Mr. Milner,

To clarify, you would like to now OPRA the most resent invoice for the Council's medical insurance from the Town's medical insurer, is this correct?

As stated in my previous e-mail, the Township does not participate in the State's medical benefits plan, therefore there are no applications for said plan. Additionally, you requested the applications for "each town council employee", the Councilmembers do not have employees so there would not be any applications since no employees exist.

Any identifiable government documents that you request that we are legally allowed to provide you we are happy to do so.

Have a good day!
Bonnie Brookes

Dear Bonnie Brookes,

The information asked for is from the town council members. The vote (I believe 8 to 1 in favor) took place in March or April of 2019. Can you please tell me:
1. What medical plan do municipal employees have?
2. The township website where bills are disclosed is down for the time being. Can you tell me when it will be back up?

Yours sincerely,

John W. Milner

Good Morning Mr. Milner,

I do not have the name of the medical insurance plan. I apologize on the website being down, please know the Township is actively trying to get it back up and hopefully will be up shortly. Going back to my previous clarification, are you OPRA'ing the most recent invoice for the Council's medical insurance from the Town's medical insurer?
