A group of Farmington administrative retirees have asked city officials to review recent changes to retiree health care benefits, and council members will review their request during a special study session Monday

Retired city managers Frank Lauhoff and Robert Deadman, and retired clerk/treasurer Patsy Cantrell say the city's decision to move Medicare-eligible retirees to a Medicare Advantage plan reduces retiree benefits. In a letter to officials, they ask for a review of a reserve fund, which could be used to increase retiree benefits. 

Officials will also discuss a proposed wine sampling at the Farmington Farmers and Artisans Market, the appointment process for board and committee members and other items. The meeting starts at 7 p.m.; a full agenda is posted at ci.farmington.mi.us
