Re: 2.1% COLA Effective January 1, 2002/Trustee Election Results
Dear Pension Recipients:
Following actuarial certification as to its affordability, a
2.1% COLA has been approved for all pension recipients effective
January 1, 2002. This is based on the CPI-U measurement of inflation
from October 2000 to October 2001. This increase will be effective
with your January 2002 pension payment to be made at the end of
January 2002 for that month.
The recent trustee election results for the trustee position
whose three (3) year term begins in January, 2002 are as follows:
Randy L. Aylieff: 564
Your pension board appreciates the response from our retired firefighters in
this election. Congratulations go out to Randy Aylieff who will
begin his third 3-year term on the pension board. The Board also
appreciates Richard Thompson who ran for this position.
Richard G. Thompson: 115
Since our last update we lost retiree Hugo L. Johnson who
