No Employee Discount
THE CITY COMMISSION SAYS NO TO JOHNSON CITY EMPLOYEES GETTING A DISCOUNTED RATE ON FEES TO USE THE NEW COMMUNITY CENTER. THE PLAN WOULD HAVE GIVEN AROUND A ONE-HUNDRED-DOLLAR DISCOUNT PER YEAR TO CITY EMPLOYEES WHO USE THE FACILITY. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN EMPLOYEES WORKING DIRECTLY FOR THE CITY NO MATTER WHERE THEY RESIDE, BUT WOULD NOT HAVE INCLUDED SCHOOL EMPLOYEES IN THE PLAN. CITY MANAGER PETE PETERSON TOLD THE COMMISSION IF EMPLOYEES HAD A DISCOUNTED RATE THEY WOULD UTILIZE THE FACILITY AND BETTER THEIR HEALTH, WHICH WOULD SAVE TAXPAYER MONEY ON INUSURANCE COSTS. COMMISSIONERS VOTED NO SAYING EVERYONE SHOULD PAY THE SAME RATE AS THE TAXPAYERS WHO PAID FOR THE FACILITY. (cc)
