Beardstown Police settled a three year deal with some major changes in pay and insurance.  The unit accepted a 5/4/4% wage increase in exchange for a cap of $800 for single coverage health insurance.  Residency mileage was adjusted to 25 miles for veteran officers.  12-hour shift terms were included. Shift vacancies created by comp time use will be filled and paid with cash payment only.  Chris Baer and Ian Dennis finalized the deal, with Labor Council Field Representative Doug Crawford.
