Administration explains proposed benefit changes to Council

September 16, 2016

Changes to the supplemental benefits package offered to retirees were discussed at a special meeting of Council Thursday. The administration has proposed charging retirees the same amount it charges active employees for supplemental benefits and eliminating the program for new hires. The proposed changes could save the city more than $4.5 million next year. Supplemental benefits are secondary to primary benefits. City retirees receive their primary healthcare benefits from the Ohio Public Employee Retirement System (OPERS).
