New Business: Dunn County Tax Collection Contract: Motion was made that we sign the one year contract with Dunn County for tax parcel collection at $2.25 per parcel by S. Nielsen, 2nd by J. Wittenmeyer. Approved.
Patrolman’s Contract: Due to Kevin trying to find different insurance we have tabled his contract until now. Kevin’s health insurance plan has a very high detectable and he is requesting a health savings plan to help offset that cost. By law, the max amount the town can put into a plan for him is $6,550.00 per year, however this amount can be rolled over from year to year.
Proposal was made to give Kevin a 6% wage increase over the course of 3 years (2% each year). Kevin’s contract will be for 3 years which can be opened by either party at any time. The Township will put $6,550.00 per year into a Health Savings Plan for Kevin to use at his discretion.
