Letter: Bereavement Benefit Cut Seems High

As part of the recent Indian Trail Improvement District workshop on staff benefits, I was struck by a recommendation from Human Resources Attorney Lara Donlon regarding bereavement benefits. She stated that the current benefits, “Compared to other entities… seemed a bit high.” She then recommended cutting the benefits in half. It seems pretty drastic to change the current rate that she says is “a bit high,” by 50 percent.
