New Employee Contracts Will Save Dane County $2 Million in 2013

The Capitol Times reports some good news in Madison and its outlying areas – new government contracts will save Dane County taxpayers over $2 million next year. The savings are the result of employee contributions to retirement funds, which will be phased in starting in 2013. Those contributions are a direct result of Act 10, which mandated that public employees make contributions to their health care and retirement benefits that are more in line with private sector standards.
