Employee Benefits

Purpose

Wages and salaries must be competitive if the city is to attract high-quality applicants. Equally important, however, is a well-balanced employee benefit program which provides for health coverage, and includes a range of benefits that are often as important to prospective employees as their basic earnings.

Programs the city has in place include:

  • Defined-benefit pension benefit
  • Dental insurance
  • Employee assistance program
  • Health coverage for employees
  • Long-term disability protection
  • Medical leave
  • Paid holidays
  • Term-life insurance
  • Vacation

Family / Dependents

Employees may also cover their family / dependents on the group health, dental, and life plan. Employees who choose dependent coverage will be responsible for the entire cost of the dependent / family premium.

More Information

All of these programs are structured and administered in a way that they comply with federal, state, and local laws and policies.
