Palm Beach County Commission votes Tuesday on sweeping package updating lifeguards’ pay and benefits

092516-pbc-lifeguards-3Palm Beach County commissioners on Tuesday will vote on a sweeping agreement that provides for many changes the county’s ocean rescue lifeguards have sought for years.

An agenda memo for Tuesday’s meeting contains the collective bargaining agreement which was signed Nov. 16 and later approved by the rank and file, and was obtained and detailed last month by The Palm Beach Post. County administrators and commissioners met privately before their Dec. 20 regular meeting to discuss the agreement.

The agenda memo for Tuesday’s meeting says the new package will cost the county an extra $783,702 for its first full year and $856,579 for the 2018-2019 budget year, and cost “will increase annually subject to Board approved salary increases and FRS funding requirements.” FRS is the Florida Retirement System.
