Rescind the Cadillac health care benefits for part time Trustees
On February 12th, 2014 The Macomb Township Board of Trustees approved the resolution titled:
RESOLUTION AMENDING ESTABLISHING SALARY, BENEFITS AND COMPENSATION FOR TOWNSHIP SUPERVISOR, CLERK, TREASURER TRUSTEES, SPECIFIED EMPLOYEES AND APPOINTED MEMBERS OF BOARDS AND COMMISSIONS.
The motion to approve this resolution was made by Trustee Cliff Freitas and seconded by Trustees Nancy Nevers (Who as a result of the vote now both receive health care benefits not previously offered to part-time trustees) The vote was approved 7-0.
This vote created health care and retirement benefits that were not offered to Macomb Township trustees in the past, and shockingly, these are lifetime benefits, which also apply to spouses, and precludes any newly elected officials from receiving these newly created benefits.
This vote was featured in an article in the Macomb Township Chronicle.
These health benefits are the Cadillac of plans ($26,000 for family $12,000 for individual) are out of the norm for part time Trustees who are only required to attend two short meetings a month once elected.
Please sign the petition to send the board a message that the hard working, taxpaying residents are not happy with these highly out of the norm benefits.
