Congratulations to the Bargaining Team consisting of Ryan Edwardson and James Neblock.  The Team has negotiated a two-year term Agreement consisting of fair wage increases along with slight increases in the H.M.O. premium co-pays and decreases in the P.P.O. premium co-pays depending upon which tier of the plan chosen.  The economy and the concerns of the citizens they protect and serve were driving forces for the Team throughout the negotiations.  The bargaining relationship throughout the process was amiable and with some give-and-take by both aprties, a fair and equitable Agreement was achieved.  All parties are to be commended for their professionalism shown during the process.
