Senate Bill No. 4002 requires that the West Virginia Economic Zone Development Authority provide public notice of this bond.

All employer participants in PERS will see an employer contribution increase to 17% beginning July 2010. This action has been taken to help make up for the losses in investments but the increase to 17% is only expected to be in effect for one year.

Originally, the projected increase was going to be 20% but in working with the actuary and crunching the numbers, it has been decided that 17% will be adequate.

Is there going to be an employee contribution increase? The Consolidated Public Retirement Board does not have the authority to increase employee contributions, only employers'. Only the Legislature can increase employee contributions.

Do You Care About the Environment? Do You Want Your Community to be a Fiscally Responsible Leader in the Sustainability Movement? Good. This Book is for You!

From wall wart reduction to hybrid police cars to major projects like energy efficient street relighting, cities and counties all across the country are examining their energy use and carbon emissions and implementing solutions. Many are doing it because it is the right thing to do. Some are doing it as part of community wide citizen led initiatives. Others are simply trying to save money any way that makes sense.

Bottom Line Green is our attempt to honor the leading edge communities and to encour- age the rest. In local government, where the reward for risk is small, few cities or counties want to be first, but almost all want to be first to be second. For those of you who have been first – many thanks! For those of you wait- ing to be first to be second – the time is now! The trail has been blazed. Being Green and adding to the bottom line; saving the planet and saving money too is an achievable reality.

 
Cities across America are the bastions of Democracy. Cities are also hotbeds of innovation. They have to be. Resources never keep up with de- mand for services. In this environment of incredible mission and unbeliev- able challenge, Amazing Cities across America are making commitments to reduce their carbon footprint and even pledging to become carbon neutral. They are doing it within their existing resource allocations and doing it with a sense of urgency and true purpose.

Mike Conduff and Jim Hunt present a compelling case that it is possible to both Go Green and Save Money!

Nineteen cities across the state have elected to participate in West Virginia Retirement Plus, a 457 deferred compensation plan that cities, counties and other political subdivisions may offer their employees.

South Charleston, St. Albans, Dunbar and Ripley are among cities that make the plan available. A total of 30 counties, including Kanawha and Raleigh, offer the plan to their employees.

“We’re thrilled that these initial cities have seen fit to make the plan available,” State Treasurer John Perdue said. “We trust those numbers will continue to rise as more cities, counties and other entities understand what we can do for them.”
