Taylor County magistrates agreed to provide hazardous duty retirement pay for sheriff's deputies at a special meeting Tuesday afternoon.
Judge/Executive Eddie Rogers told magistrates that Kentucky Retirement Systems restructured its retirement plans and no longer give hazardous retirement pay for hazardous duty employees.
However, he said, magistrates can agree to reinstate hazardous duty retirement pay.
Rogers said the hazardous retirement pay rate the County is responsible for could increase in the next year to more than the current budgeted amount.
