Mesa County to eliminate contributions to retirement plan

Mesa County will stop providing matches to one of its employees’ two retirement plans next year, marking another benefit reduction in the wake of lagging revenues.

Commissioners this morning agreed to eliminate the county’s contributions to employees’ deferred compensation plans, a move that should save the county nearly $700,000 in 2011.

“We’re continuing to find any savings we can that don’t negatively impact services to people in the community,” county spokeswoman Jessica Peterson said. “Obviously, after last year’s significant internal cuts, it’s becoming more difficult to prevent those service impacts, but we’re really looking at every option to find savings that don’t affect citizens.”
