  1. The new policy to end SLBB is in place to be phased in during union contract negotiations. There are 11 union contracts which expire on various dates. The new contract for the Water Department was negotiated on May 1, 2020. Under the new policy, union employees are offered 6 months to submit a resignation in order to qualify for the previous SLBB practice. It appears Mr. Peterson chose to retire within 6 months of the new contract resulting in the accelerated payment. The new policy places accumulated sick leave in a HSA after the retirement date. Accrued vacation is also payed out after retirement ending the need for accelerated payments.
