City Retirement Update

The Dothan City Commission recently approved sending legislation to Montgomery allowing its employees to join the pension plan.

The House has already signed off on the legislation.

But, as Senator Harri Anne Smith was preparing to introduce it in the Senate, Mayor Chester Sowell says she noticed that the city might have to pay a two percent cost of living increase that city leaders hadn't factored in the move.

The mayor says he'll be back in contact with Senator Smith in the next day or so after the city has finished running the numbers.
