' L r i i - I By NORMA CWJMNGHAM (Staff Writer) Hie Knox Couflty Board's Salary a*»d Insurance Committee Wednesday agreed to take bids tor a comprehensive insurance program for the county. The committee instructed Oakleaf-Butts Agency of Moline, insurance • consultants to the county, to send specifications to all insurance agencies in the county and to advertise for bids. Deadline for submitting bid? will be Sept. 7. Gerald Butts told committee members his firm should be able to analyze bids on coverage within a week. Roger Sei- boldt, 4-th, chairman, told re^ porters following last night's meeting that the committee would probably meet soon after that time and consider the recommendation of the consulting agency. According to specifications presented at last night's meeting, quotes will be called for an "umbrella" liability policy on limits of $1 million, $2 million and $5 million. In addition, bids Will be called for property, equipment, fleet, boiler and ed and cooperate with the insurance consulting firm on the efficient administration of the in- suranee program. ••' Butts satd the specifications were written in (hat manner to insure that the county got the best service for Its dftttar. J 3*Year Basis The specifications point out that coverage will be written on a 3-yeai* basis and that competitive bidding will lie opened each six years. "By setting a 6-year estimate, we will encourage major companies (o really do a j6b for (he county," Butts said-He contended that bidding on the program once a year or even once every titree years would be too expensive for agencies and might keep them from He said, Jwwever, that the re- b'ddmg would be left open to make it flexible according to market conditions. Butts told the comirdttee that the insurance market is currently very Competitive.

The Food Freezer Sales Boom * J Stockpiling Seen as Cause A consumer trend to stockpile meats and other foods while prices are still reasonably low apparently has fueled food freezer sales in Galesburg. Local dealers have reported that sales are soaring. One dealer described the upsurge as /'tremendous, everybody wants one. Glenn Norris, manager of Hines & McClintock, 138 E. Main St, feels sales are up because people are beginning to stockpile more food in light of recent Phase IV price increases. A Sears spokesman reported that food freezer sales were "real good." He said meat prices seemed to be the major reason for the increase although sales are usually high this time of year anyway. One dealer said the freezers are being used to store foods raised by residents in their own gardens. "It does worry customers because most of them now have gardens because of the predicted food shortage this winter.
