Beginning Oct. 1, county employees and their dependents who require AirLife helicopter transport will not have to worry about out-of-pocket expenses -- which often can total more than $15,000 -- thanks to a contract approved July 14 by the Wilson County Commissioners Court. The deal also may benefit county residents.

The county will pay just $10 per employee -- a total cost of approximately $1,500 per year -- for membership in the AirLife Guardian Angel program.

As part of the deal, all Wilson County residents are eligible to join for $10 per year.

The commissioners also voted to offer similar Methodist AirCare and AirMedCare to county employees on an elective basis. If an employee chooses the coverage at open-enrollment time, he or she would pay $5 per month for back-up coverage in the event AirLife is not available.

In other business, the commissioners have been considering the purchase of equipment since June. The equipment will be used to apply chip-seal to paved roads in unincorporated areas across all four county precincts.

Upon further review, commissioners Larry Wiley and Paul Pfeil learned that the county could pay less for the equipment if the items were purchased from San Antonio-based Cooper Equipment Co. The chip spreader, Wiley said, will cost approximately $165,000.

However, the emulsion truck will cost approximately $82,000 for equipment including the tank and pumps, which must be mounted onto a truck chassis with a 120-inch frame. The truck could cost as much as $65,000.

The commissioners also made the following appointments:

•Bill Mainz of La Vernia will serve the remainder of an unexpired term on the Wilson County Emergency Services District No. 1 board of commissioners

•Alton Tieken will serve the remainder of Ralph Gerhardt’s unexpired term as an at-large member of the Wilson County Development Review Committee. Gerhardt passed away in May.

How does a resident of the county (Wilson) obtain the Airlife insurance?
