Commissioners approve benefit changes

January 8, 2007

Albany--  Albany city leaders hope changes to benefits for city workers will help with productivity and retirement planning.  

Monday night, city commissioners unanimously approved several policy changes. One reduces the number of sick days employees can accrue from 15 to 12. City leaders think the reduction will encourage city employees to use sick leave with more discretion.

City employees now also must contribute to their pension plan for the first time in more than 20 years. Public safety workers will contribute 7-percent.  General employees will contribute 4 percent.
