RESOLUTION SUPPORTING THE IOWA PUBLIC EMPLOYEES’ RETIREMENT SYSTEM (IPERS)

WHEREAS, Employees are entitled to basic protections and promises that the State has made to them, including the right to expect that IPERS not be changed negatively nor the benefits of current or future employees be put at risk, and;
WHEREAS, Any changes to IPERS that would diminish retirement security and predictability will hurt employee morale and lead to the inability to attract and retain dedicated, well-trained, experienced, and conscientious public servants, and;
WHEREAS, the school board members of the Charles City Community School District value our employees and the relationships that have been established, and we strongly believe that our community and our state benefit when employees have a strong and predictable retirement system.
