  • Plymouth fire pension dispute ends with $1.1 million payment
    Posted On: Sep 01, 2018

    Ring the bell: The longstanding dispute between the city of Plymouth and Plymouth Township over the payment of firefighters' pension obligations has been extinguished.

    The neighboring municipalities are now on the same page following the city's presentation of a $1.1 million check to the township as payment of pension obligations that have been smoldering since the dissolution of the joint city/township fire department in 2012.

    “This is a historic day for the city and township,” township Supervisor Kurt Heise said. “Our current township board inherited this issue from the previous administration and we were committed to resolving it without time-consuming and costly litigation that would have only benefited lawyers and not taxpayers.”

    Plymouth Township’s former administration ended the joint fire department in 2012 for a variety of financial, contractual and political reasons. While officials were able to resolve the payment of retiree health care obligations in late 2016, the issue of pension payments remained a sticking point between the parties.

    “The people of Plymouth elected us to solve problems, not make them worse,” Mayor Oliver Wolcott said. “We are turning the page on the past and building upon our positive and professional relationship with the township.”

    Wolcott also thanked former Mayor Dan Dwyer for his leadership in the settlement discussions with the township that began in early 2017.

    “We’ve had a great team from the city and township working many hours to resolve this issue,” he added, “and we are all happy to get this behind us.”
