From the San Diego Union-Tribune:
The Otay Water District voted Friday to extend lifetime retiree health benefits to district managers and their spouses, and could do the same for a larger group of employees in a month.
The Board of Directors voted 4-1 to approve the new benefits. Board member Mark Robak cast the lone dissenting vote. He noted that the district did not release a key financial analysis of the action in backup material provided with the board’s agenda.
Kudos to the U-T and Watchdog for bringing this story to light. Here’s my earlier post on the subject.
