FAST FOOD DELIVERIES -- Vice Chairman Anthony Cicoria called on fast food retaurants to provide insurance policies for drivers who deliver food products in their own vehicles.

Cicoria, who has received complaints from parents of young drivers, said the proposed bill is aimed primarily at pizza companies, to ensure that they are liable for accidents caused by pizza drivers using their own vehicles.

State law requires fast food companies and their franchises to carry insurance policies, but it does not require companies to insure their drivers, many of whom are teen-agers and use their own or family cars.

Cicoria said instead of providing insurance, some fast food companies, such as Domino's and Pizza Movers, have their drivers sign statements that hold them responsible for damages and costs in the event of accidents.

"This means the kid and the parent end up paying for the accident and then their insurance goes up," Cicoria said.

Cicoria said his bill, if passed, might also slow down some of the fast-food deliveries. Some parents are worried that their children are speeding unecessarily to deliver pizzas, he said, noting that several restaurants in the county have specials, offering free pizzas to customers who do not get delivery in 30 minutes.

"It's going to cost these companies some money, but it's good protection for the drivers," Cicoria said.

Al Kramer, treasurer of Pizza Movers, said he has mixed emotions about the proposal and how much it would cost his company to insure drivers.

Kramer said the company, with headquarters on Rte. 202 in Largo, paid $48,000 in insurance bills last year for liability, company property and vehicles of supervisors. But pizza drivers are not insured, Kramer said. "The moment the driver leaves the building {to deliver a pizza} he is on his own."

Jim Duignan, Domino's franchise owner in the northern county area, said the proposed bill would also be a great expense for his company. He said the company provides major liability insurance for all of its drivers, but it is only used in the event of major accidents involving serious injuries or death.

SCHOOL BUDGET TRANSFER -- The council received a request from the county Board of Education asking that it approve $2.2 million in transfers within the education budget to cover increased costs for special education and employe benefits.

George E. Ridler, budget director for the school system, said the request simply takes money from departments that have shown a surplus so far during the school fiscal year and gives it to departments that are short of funds.

The school system's budget for fiscal year 1987-1988 is $426 million, 85 percent of which is used to pay teacher salaries and benefits.

Ridler said about $5.2 million was initially in the special education budget, to serve 365 students, but that more special needs students have been identified than the budget allowed for.

The transfer request for employe benefits will pay primarily for long term sick leave that was not foreseen and therefore not included in the overall school budget. Ridler said several employes have taken extended periods of sick leave and the system has had to replace them.

Ridler said the transfer money would come from funds set aside for heating fuel and gasoline. "The prices for things like fuel were not as much as we had anticipated and consequently we have some money left over in those areas," Ridler said.

The council referred Murphy's request to its Fiscal Policy and Governmental Operations Committee.
