CITY ADMINISTRATION: Availability of Prescription Drug Program

Question/Comment: I know that health costs in the city are a major concern. This question was not on my agenda but came to mind as the mayor spoke. Why is it I don't hear any talk from Somerville officials or other city officials about buying prescription drugs from Canada. I remember not too long ago Mayor Curtatone mentioned this, as did Mayor Menino and other officials in other towns.

City Update 7/1/2009: The city of Somerville does allow employees to purchase prescriptions from Canadian suppliers. Information about this program can be found here: http://www.somervillema.gov/section.cfm?org=bene&page=650
