Benefits

Benefits and wellness are an important part of every employee's daily life. The City works hard to offer a benefit package that allows us to recruit and retain the best employees.

Eligibility & Enrollment


Regular full‐time, extended part-time, and regular part‐time employees are eligible for the City's benefit program. Flexible part‐time/temporary/seasonal (PTS) employees and paid-on-call firefighters do not qualify unless specifically noted.
