Susquehanna County's 78 pensioned employees came in for an unexpected holiday bonus last week when the county Retirement Board agreed to increase the county's contribution to their health insurance by $55 a month. The total amount that will be paid by the county will be $215 a month, reducing the retirees portion to $12.
Earlier this month, the commissioners said they did not budget for a cost of living allowance (COLA) for its retired employees because it would have led to a tax increase. However, the commissioners have since learned that refinancing one of the county's bonded indebtedness will result in an interest savings for 2003. Most of that money, $51,480, will be applied to the individual monthly health insurance premiums.
When the Susquehanna County Planning Commission met on December 17, they voted to meet in 2003 on the last Tuesday of each month, with the exception of December when the meeting date will be December 16. They also concurred that if schools are closed on that day because of inclement weather, the meeting will also be canceled and moved to the next day at the regular meeting time. A workshop will be held at the Montrose House at 5:30 P.M., followed by the 7:30 P.M. meeting at the County Office Building. Both meetings are open to the public.
