After three years of negotiations Orangetown officials have approved a six year deal with the Civil Service Employees Association. The contract, which was given the go ahead by town officials at Tuesday’s town board meeting, raises pay by 2.35 percent for the year of 2013, 2.45 percent for 2014, and 2.5 percent for 2015 and 2016. The contract also reduces the number of paid sick ays from 21 to 15, limits lifetime benefits to employees of 15 years or more, and raises health-care contributors for new employees from 10 percent to 17 percent. The compromise was approved last month by CSEA members, after 3 years of working without a contract. At the meeting last night members of the board also decided to put a measure to consolidate the Office of the Receiver of Taxes on the November ballot. If voted on the Tax Receiver’s office would be absorbed by the Town Clerk’s Office on January 1, 2018 after the four year term of the next officeholder is up. Both candidates running for the office, Republican Robert R. Smith and Democrat Chris Smith, support the measure.
