Jackson County Commissioners met in regular session last Monday and discussed the Tennessee Consolidated Retirement System rate (TCRS) and voted to keep it the same.
Jackson County Mayor Randy Heady stated the minimum employer contribution is 3.7%; however, the county has been contributing 7% for quite some time.
“We recommend we stay at 7%. That is were we have been for some time,” he said.
In other business, the county approved Richard Chaffin to continue to serve on the board of the Jackson County Utility District.
