The Glen Carbon Village Board on Tuesday, Apr. 11, approved the addition of a deferred compensation plan as part of the Village’s employee benefit package. The plan will be administered by the Illinois Public Pension Fund Association (IPPFA).
This is an addition to already-existing options for employees. Employees will be given plan choices through three vendors – CUNA, Mission Square/ICMA, and IPPFA. Kelly Korte, Director of Finance, told the Board that employees will receive information on the options and will also have the opportunity to speak with plan administrators to better understand those options.
In other business the Board approved the annual service contract with Motorola for communication systems. The annual contract is $29,975.
The Board also approved the write-off of uncollectible accounts with the Village. These accounts typically are the result of death, bankruptcy or accounts that have been deemed uncollectable after seven years. Total write-off is $5,366.
Scott Slemer, Public Works Director, requested approval for a new zero turn mower for the Parks Department. The purchase was approved at the cost of $14,799. The department’s old mower will be turned over to the street department for use on right-of-ways.
