Valdosta - There could soon be some added perks for the City Council in Valdosta.

They have asked City Manager Larry Hanson to research the costs of adding health care benefits and a retirement plan for council members.

Part of those costs include making the benefits retroactive for current members.  "So it would begin with present elected officials and they would receive credit for any prior service they had so any city councilman that had 8 years of service for instance, would get credit for that eight years of service," says Valdosta City Manager Larry Hanson.

The City Council will begin discussing the topic when the cost study is compiled in six months.
