How much higher? Is it as much as insurance?
I find that very hard to believe.

Is this about the city of Jeff or Clark County? I would agree it could be difficult to keep the public defenders without the health insurance being part of the benefits. Part-time elected officials should not eligible.

Here's the problem as I see it with the City Council:
1. All Council members (except 1) have full time jobs.
2. None of the Council members quit their full time jobs when they were elected to the Council
3. I am certain that ALL of the Council members had insurance of some kind prior to being elected to the Council.
4. Being on the City Council is a PART-TIME job.
Since the council members did NOT quit their full-time jobs after being elected, WHY should they quit their health/dental/vision insurance with ther full-time employers and expect the taxpayers to pay for it??
This is NO small perk. It will cost the taxpayers approx. $600,000 over the next 4 years. If the City does NOT provide insurance to part-time employees (less than 30 hours a week), why should the taxpayers provide insurance to part-time Council members???
The City Council is supposed to be fiscally responsible --- and GOOD STEWARDS of the taxpayers' dollars. I fail to see how this is spending our tax money wisely.
While I believe that insurance benefits for part-time public defenders also needs close scrutiny, this thread is about the CITY COUNCIL. Perhaps a new thread could be started about the waste of tax dollars in the county.
The City Council meets this coming Monday - 1/25. Let's see if any of them have the courage and the integrity to do what is right.
