Cecil Township supervisors approved contracts on Feb. 4 with the township’s police and public works departments.

Township Manager Don Gennuso said the supervisors approved the contracts with only Supervisor Elizabeth Cowden objecting.

According to Gennuso, the township had begun negotiations with the Cecil Township Police Wage and Policy Unit, which represents the township’s 14 officers, early last year in anticipation of the contract expiring Dec. 31. Officers had been working the past few weeks under terms of the old contract.

The new three-year contract calls for a 3.5 percent salary increase over the life of the contract, while officers will now pay a $700 yearly flat rate for their health insurance. Police officers previously paid $450 annually.

Public works employees, members of Teamsters Local 205, will receive a 3 percent salary increase over the course of their four-year contract.

The workers’ health care contributions will be $600 in the first year of the contract, with a $50 increase in each subsequent year. They had previously paid 1.5 percent of their base salary, Gennuso said.

The public works department contract also expired Dec. 31.
