The City currently offers Anthem BlueCross BlueShield to  employees. Employees may elect to have their coverage effective the  first day employment or otherwise during open enrollment. Open  enrollment is held in May of each year with a July 1 effective date of  coverage.

Currently, 85% of the premium is paid by the City for  individual coverage, and 75% of the premium is paid by the City for  other tiers including family coverage.

Domestic Partner benefits are available - same or opposite sex.

The City offers a voluntary dental and vision plans for employees through MetLife. MetLife has a wide network of professional providers.

Section 125 Plan

Sometimes known as a Flexible Spending Plan, allows you to  pay for certain medical and dental and dependent care expenses on a  pre-tax basis. By paying these expenses with pre-tax dollars, you are  taxed on a lower gross salary, thereby saving money that would otherwise  be spent on federal, state, and FICA taxes.

Employee Educational Assistance

Tuition reimbursement is available to all full-time city  employees. Up to $750 per fiscal year is available for courses and books  directly job-related from accredited institutions for non-uniform  full-time employees. Tuition reimbursement is also available to  uniformed employees.


The Non-Uniformed Employee Retirement Plan requires  participation by all full-time employees of the City and Library. This  is a defined benefit plan where employees contribute 3% of their salary  to the plan. Vesting occurs after ten years of service. Full retirement  benefits may be received at age 65 with at least ten years of service,  or age 62 with at least 30 years of service. Full retirement benefits  for vested employees are calculated as follows: Final average  compensation (greatest 3 years of most recent 10 years) multiplied by  1.6% (the benefit factor) multiplied by years of service. Early  retirement is also available and is actuarially calculated.

           The Police and Fire Retirement Plan requires participation  by all sworn officers of the Police and Fire Departments. This is a  hybrid plan: defined contribution (401a) and defined benefit. Employees  contribute 5% of their salary to their defined contribution account  which is 100% vested from day one. Vesting for the defined benefit plan  occurs after 10 year of service at which time a lump sum City payment is  contributed to the employees' 401a account. Full retirement benefits  may be received at age 50 with 25 years of service. A full retirement  benefit for vested employees is equivalent to the employee's defined  contribution account balance at the time of retirement plus an offset  defined benefit amount which is actuarially calculated.

457 Deferred Compensation Plan

As a public employee, you have a unique opportunity to supplement your retirement income. Utilizing the voluntary 457  retirement plan, you may invest through automatic payroll deductions.  In a Section 457 deferred compensation plan you save pre-tax dollars.  Pre-tax contributions are funds contributed before federal, and in most  cases state and local, income taxes are withheld. Your contributions and  your earnings are not taxed while you let them grow.
