The Brazil City Council passed two ordinances and a resolution at its monthly meeting Wednesday.
Ordinance No. 20-2011 authorizes the purchase of a blanket bond/crime insurance policy for certain elected officials.
The ordinance states, "The fiscal body of the city may, by ordinance, authorize the purchase of a blanket bond or a crime insurance policy endorsed to include faithful performance to cover the faithful performance of all employees, commission members and persons acting on behalf of the local government unit, including the city clerk-treasurer."
The council also passed Ordinance No. 21-2011, which will provide insurance to the common council.
The ordinance allows the city to offer a group health/accident group insurance to members of the Common Council.
Resolution 17-2011 was also passed, which establishes a blood-borne pathogens exposure plan.
The council said the plan will limit the exposure to blood and other potentially infectious materials.
The plan will cover all employees who could be "reasonably anticipated" as a result of their job duties to face contact with blood or other infectious materials.
