November 10, 2010 - Treasurer Curt Carson and Trustee Mark Petterson voted against changing requirements for lifetime healthcare for township officials, but for opposite reasons.

Carson believes eight years are enough to qualify for healthcare, while Petterson doesn't think officials should get lifetime healthcare at all.

"I've worked for 25 years and when I'm done, everything's done," he said.

Independence Township Board voted 5-2, Nov. 3, to increase service requirement for lifetime healthcare for fulltime township officials, supervisor, clerk, and treasurer, from eight to 16 years. Voting yes were Supervisor Dave Wagner, Clerk Shelagh VanderVeen, and trustees Neil Wallace, Dave Lohmeier, and Larry Rosso. The new requirement does not apply to Wagner.
