Approved: Residents pass public referendum on fire department retirement benefits

Two trustees, village justice also win reelection

— Enders said the $700 per year in accrued benefits works out to approximately 8 cents per hour per firefighter.

The fire department began collecting firefighter eligibility data for the program on Jan. 1 of this year. With the LOSAP now publically approved, that data will be submitted to the village board on Jan. 1, 2015, and payments to eligible firefighters will begin on June 1, 2015, Wheeler said. About 60 percent of the department is expected to qualify.

Results for the municipal officials reelected on June 17 showed that Porter, a Democrat and two-term trustee, received 99 votes and Joseph, a Republican and one-term trustee, received 87 votes. Both positions are for two-year terms on the village board.

Village Justice Timothy Moore received 87 votes to win a four-year term heading the village court.
