The Dickson City Council has voted unanimously to improve health insurance benefits for city employees.

The council voted at its Nov. 4 meeting to stay with Cigna and switch from a two-tier plan to a four-tier plan that allows each staff member to choose employee-only, employee-and-spouse, employee-and-dependent or employee-and-family coverages. 

The new plan is expected to increase costs to the city but will hopefully help attract and retain employees, City Manager Rydell Wesson told the council.

The amount of the increased cost to taxpayers won’t be known until the city goes through open enrollment next month.

The new system, which takes effect in January 2020, involves city-paid supplements.

The council also unanimously approved on first reading an amendment to the municipal code regarding employees’ accrual for vacation and sick leave, and the city’s bereavement leave policy.

That amendment wouldn’t change the amounts of allowed leave, but it would simply update the code to accurately represent the duration of shifts.
