[Amended 7-7-1999 by Ord. No. 99-15]
Each Supervisor of Lower Paxton Township shall receive compensation as a Supervisor in the annual amount of $5,000, with such compensation being paid in monthly installments.
In addition to the compensation authorized under this article, Supervisors while in office are eligible for inclusion in Township-paid insurance plans, as follows:
Supervisors and their dependents are eligible for inclusion in group life, health, hospitalization, medical service and accident insurance plans paid in whole or in part by the Township. Their inclusion in said plans requires submission of a letter requesting participation at a regularly scheduled meeting of the Board of Supervisors before commencing participation.
The insurance referred to in this article shall be uniformly applicable to those covered and shall not give eligibility preference to or improperly discriminate in favor of Supervisors.
No policy of group life insurance shall contain any provision for a cash surrender value, loan value or any other benefit beyond the face amount of insurance. The policy may contain a provision that when the insurance ceases because of termination of employment or term of office, the person is entitled to have issued to him by the insurer, without evidence of insurability, an individual policy of insurance of any form customarily issued by the insurer at the age and for the amount applied for if the amount is not in excess of the amount of life insurance which ceases because of the termination and the application for the individual policy is made and first premium is paid to the insurer within 31 days after termination.
The Township may deduct from any compensation payable to a Supervisor such part of any insurance premium or charge which is payable by the Supervisor within the terms of the particular Township's insurance plan.
