ALFRED — York County Commissioners will no longer be eligible for benefits like health insurance at county expense
Their vote to eliminate benefits like health insurance, long- and short-term disability and retirement benefits for themselves came after a motion from Commissioner Michael Cote, which was seconded by Commissioner Richard Clark, at the board’s first meeting of the year, held Wednesday. It was approved in a 4-1 vote, with commissioner Richard Dutremble casting the dissenting vote, because, he said, he’s unsure whether the retirement benefit, once in place, can be rescinded.
The decision came after organizational aspects of the first meeting of the year, which was also the first meeting of their four year terms for the officials following the Nov. 8 election.
