HARTVILLE – Hartville Village Council has approved a renewal of the village’s health insurance coverage plan with Blue Cross Blue Shield.

Mayor Cynthia Billings said the 2021 contract represents a 9 percent increase over 2020, from $11,871 to $12,937.

She added that Fiscal Officer Scott Varney negotiated the rate increase down from a 17 percent year-to-year increase first proposed by the insurer.
