Middletown council approves agreement on wage and health care issues for borough police for 2015 and 2016

Posted

Middletown may be close to resolving one of the issues that has been in the way of moving forward on a new contract with the borough police association.

Borough council during its Dec. 5 meeting by 6-0 vote approved its side of a proposed agreement on wage and health care issues for the police association covering the years 2015 and 2016.

The move is conditional on the police association approving the proposed agreement by this Friday, Dec. 8.

If the association does so, then “it looks like we have a meeting of the minds,” said Borough Manager Ken Klinepeter.

Details were not made public. Klinepeter said that during a closed-door executive session borough Solicitor Adam Santucci laid out terms of a proposed deal that had been worked out with Santucci’s attorney counterpart representing the association.

Council’s vote following the executive session means that the council is “on board” with the proposed deal, Klinepeter said.

Middletown police officers have not received a pay raise since July 2014. The last contract between the borough and the association expired at the end of December 2012.

The July 2014 pay increase was called for in an arbitration award.
