Commissioners consider benefit option Staff writer Comal County Commissioners considered an optional benefit eligibility plan for county employees on the retirement system Monday, but decided to walt on voting on it. The optional plan will allow employees to be vested in IO years rather than in 12 years. Vested means the county’s contribution of 5 percent would begin to accrue along with the employees’ contribution of 5 percent. Also, lf a person decides to work past retirement age and dies, his or her beneficiary would get the retirement pay check in full for the rest of his or her life. Another part of the plan, called the rule of 8(1, would allow employees to retire when their age plus years of service equals HO That would allow a 55-year-old employee to retire after 25 years of service. County Auditor Bate Bond said the plan would cost the taxpayers nothing. Retirement checks in some cases might be slightly smaller In other business, commissioners awarded the bid on the satellite office to Clarence Simon for $15,500, and agreed not to require a construction bond because payments to the con tractor would be made after the work was complete Simon was the apparent low bidder out of seven bids Simon asked for the amount to he split into three payments the first after the slab was poured, the second after the roof work was finished and the remainder at the end of the job.
