Sunrise Beach Fire District employees will now have some of the best retirement benefits available following the fire district’s board of directors approving an increase in the LAGERS (lah-gurs) system.
Chief Joseph Laplant says, since 2016, the district has only been offering Level-1 benefits under the program.
The board, on Monday, increased those benefits to Level-6.
Laplant also says that Station #4 will be opening ahead of schedule on December 2nd to become the district’s third full-time station.
The increase of benefits under the Lagers system and the opening of another full-time station house are a result of district patrons approving Proposition Fire which was passed in August of 2022.
