Henderson Approves More Buyouts for City Workers
News

HENDERSON, Nev.  -- Henderson city officials have approved a budget for the next fiscal year that includes a third set of voluntary buyouts.

The severance plan approved Tuesday night could cost the city up to $6 million by offering employees continuing or retiree health coverage and waiving a 10-year service requirement for sick leave payments.

The plan has previously cost about $6.4 million in benefits, which was recovered within 10 months after the employees left. Nevada's second largest city has made roughly $90 million in cuts during the past two years, including a 15 percent reduction in staff not in public safety departments. Compensation has also been reduced.
