CONSIDERATION OF NEW BUSINESS
CLARIFICATION OF RETIREMENT BENEFIT FOR SUPERIOR COURT JUDGES
Attorney Smith advised that this comes to the Board requesting that a motion be made and added to the minutes for the retiring Superior Court Judges stating that they will be entitled to retirement funding when they retire. The past retiring Superior Court judges have been paid a retirement benefit based on a percentage of the supplement check paid by the government authorities of the counties of the judicial circuit. This has been done in the past for every Superior Court judge retiring from the circuit, but no record has been found that a Board had officially approved, therefore, the Finance Director and Human Resource Director requests that this be added to the agenda for Board approval.
Commissioner Cunningham made a motion to approve the Superior Court Judges’ retirement benefits. Commissioner Sexton seconded the motion and Commissioners Cunningham, Sexton,
and Steward voted aye. Motion passed.
Commissioner Cunningham made a motion to adjourn the meeting. Commissioner Sexton seconded the motion and all voted aye. There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 6:30 p.m.
