BCATO Act 600 Resolution
The Bucks County Association of Township Officials (BCATO) is requesting support for the its Act 600 resolution passed at the 2015 Pennsylvania State Association of Township Officials (PSATS) conference.
This resolution supports legislation that would amend Act 600 and/or the Second Class Township Code to allow for a defined contribution pension plan for new officers.
Explanation of Need for Resolution:
Act 600 requires that if a municipality has a police department with three or more full time officers, and it provides those officers with a pension plan; it must be a defined benefit plan. Having the ability to provide a defined contribution plan would help municipalities control pension.
