Dougherty County Schools increase retirement benefits

February 13, 2006

Albany- Some Dougherty County School System workers are about to get a boost to their retirement plans. Monday night, the school board agreed to increase the match for non-classified employees, that includes cafeteria workers, bus drivers, and custodians. The match will now be three to one, equal to what teachers get.

"This is an enhancement because they're not part of the teacher retirement system," said Michael Windom, Dougherty Co. School Board Member.

The measure was approved, providing there is enough money in the budget to fund the increase. The increase is expected to cost the district $84,000 this year.
