As of July 1st, Wilton transitioned to the State Partnership Plan for health benefits for police, fire, parks and grounds and administrative town union employees. Non-union employees also transitioned to the Plan. Wilton First Selectwoman Lynne Vanderslice called it a win-win for employees and the Town. The transition is expected to generate approximately $600,000 in savings versus the previous self-insured plan. $300,000 of the savings was already reflected in the FY2021 approved budget. Vanderslice says this assisted the Board of Selectmen in achieving a FY2021 budget 1.77% lower than the FY2020 budget. In August, the Board of Selectmen will discuss whether any of the additional savings should be used to reinstate some of the funding reductions to the FY2021 Wilton Library and Trackside grants.
