County prepares for pension pains

-A A +A
By Stevie Lowery

Unless state lawmakers act, county government faces a 50 percent increase in pension contributions for its 110 employees, beginning July 1. 

In dollars and cents, that’s a $400,000 to $450,000 annual increase.

“This year is going to be a tough time for budgets,” Marion County Judge/Executive David Daugherty told magistrates during the Marion County Fiscal Court meeting on March 15.

Thankfully, the county has approximately $4 million in reserves, right now. But that could be gone in 10 years, if not sooner.
