Retirement plan: Committee gives school board options to save money


Eau Claire (WQOW) - There could be a change in retirement benefits as a school district looks to cut costs.

A special committee was formed to put together several ideas and on Monday night, the Eau Claire School Board looked through three of those options.  One option could provide a savings of $31 million over the course of the next 30 years.  Several board members expressed they don't want any changes for employees retiring within the next five years.  The board did not take any action on Monday night.  It's requesting more information before any decisions are made.  Before Act 10, early retirement benefits were negotiated.

WQOW News 18 will have more on this story on Tuesday.
