During the Naperville City Council meeting, the group voted to do away with their health benefits from the city.
As compensation plans can’t be removed while in office, those benefits will begin to expire after the 2017 election in the spring and will not be offered to the newly elected.
Due to the staggered terms for council members, from two to four years, benefits for medical, dental and vision will begin to expire in 2017 for Judy Brodhead, Kevin Coyne, Kevin Gallaher and John Krummen.
The remaining council members with four-year terms will have coverage until their terms expire in 2019.
The removal of health benefits does not apply to the position of mayor.
The city currently pays 80% of the health insurance premium, with council members paying 20%.
