The City of Higginsville, Missouri, hereby elects to adopt a policy to offer certain employees an opportunity to retire early at the minimum age of fifty-five (55) years. This option can be used in conjunction with the "Lagers 80 and Out" program. To qualify for this program, the employee must have been employed by the City of Higginsville for at least ten (10) years and not have any disciplinary action pending with the City.
The City will provide and pay group health insurance and dental for the employee until he/she reaches Medicare eligible retirement age. The City will also provide dependent group health insurance and dental benefits as long as this is available, but the employee will be responsible for this cost.
