Huge health care benefit for Fire Board Directors- why???
Original post made by Peter Carpenter, Atherton: Lindenwood, on Nov 11, 2009
"3. Board members may elect to participate in the District provided health insurance for themselves and their dependants not to exceed seven hundred fifty dollars ($750.00), As
described in the firefighters MOU. The remainder of the costs will be provided by the director."
Why in the world should very part time Directors receive the same $9000/yr in health insurance benefits that full time firefighters receive?
I have declined this benefit and will vote to have it abolished for all Directors moving forward.
