PURPOSE OF SPECIAL MEETING
Mr. Helwig advised Council that the employees had ratified the contract. It was a six-year contract with features that would result in the type of quality service the community expected and would be a boost to our ability to attract and retain the best people possible.
Ms. Gronlund-Fox was pleased with the contract and felt it was good for the City and the employees. She noted that the prescription drug coverage had become an area of concern and with this contract the bargaining unit would have a $5.00 co-pay on generic prescriptions and a $10.00 co-pay for name brand prescriptions. Also included in the contract was percentage increases for the clerical staff and field employees. The vacation schedule had been increased for the employees, as it was very low as far as top end. We are now in range with other communities used for comparison and have, in exchange for the $5/$10 co-pay, added orthodontic coverage.
Mayor Clark thanked Ms. Gronland-Fox for her efforts.
