Wellington North went behind closed doors Monday night to discuss paying for 24-hour life insurance coverage for volunteer firefighters in Arthur and Mount Forest.

In the past, the firefighters have had their insurance paid by the municipality, but only while on duty.

Council returned to the open session and approved paying for extended 24-hour coverage. It will cost the municipality about $4,500 extra annually.

Mayor Andy Lennox said the discussion was behind closed doors because it dealt with personnel.
