Every year, it's just a guess; the total could be much higher or much lower than estimated, depending upon how many inmates ask to see a doctor and how sick the inmates are. In 1995, the county spent nearly $135,000 on medical expenses. In 1996, an estimated $63,000 was spent. Officials hope to regulate those medical expenses by contracting with a medical service for a negotiated amount. The request for proposals for medical contracts will be presented to Saline County commissioners for discussion at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday in Room 211 of the City- County Building. The commission's 11 a.m. Tuesday formal meeting has been canceled because of a lack of agenda items. But commissioners will meet informally from 9 a.m. until business is concluded Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Other appointments scheduled include: • 1:30 p.m. Monday, discussion of the Kansas Workers Risk Cooperative. • 1:45 p.m. Monday, discussion about whether a bridge on Lightville Road about three- fourths of a mile south of McReynolds Road, damaged by a vehicle on Sept. 26,1996, should be repaired at a cost of $28,500 or re- Governor urges flood donations By The Associated Press TOPEKA — Goy.

Public Works Director Jerry Fowler believes the bridge should be replaced, because if it's just repaired, the 100-year-old structure will need future repairs. County Administrator David Criswell believes it should be repaired because it's not well traveled and the money could be better spent elsewhere. • 10 a.m. Tuesday, budget planning. • 11 a.m. Wednesday, discussion about the county's investment strategy. Treating prisoners The county has been discussing signing a contract for medical services for more than a year, said Capt. Rick Hansmann of the Saline County Sheriffs Office. Currently, a part-time nurse sees sick inmates about'three days a week, Hansmann said. If an inmate needs to see a doctor, he or she is taken to the hospital emergency room or StatCare Family Medical Clinic and Minor Emergency Center, 1001 S. Ohio. Hansmann said that by contracting with a doctor and a nurse, the jail could be served full time, and inmates wouldn't have to be taken to the hospital or Stat- Care. A nurse would be provided for eight hours a day, seven days a week. A doctor would supervise the nurse, would visit the jail once a week or more, and would be on call if needed at other times. The services would be provided for a set amount a year, regardless of the number of patients the doctor saw or the number of calls to the jail. By having one doctor responsible for all of the inmates, Hansmann said there should be fewer referrals to specialists. Midstate Driving School Enroll Now!
