LIMA — City Council will vote on a new contract Monday for Police Department supervisors that provides 2 percent wage increases for the next three years.

The city and Fraternal Order of Police Gold Unit have a tentative contract that provides the raises in 2013, 2014 and 2015, according to a letter from Mayor David Berger and Human Resources Director Vince Ozier.

The contract also includes increases in employees’ contributions for health care benefits, to 9 percent this year, 10 percent next year and 11 percent in 2015. Also, employees’ deductibles will increase.

The Gold Unit represents sergeants and lieutenants in the department. Council recently approved a contract with the park rangers’ union.
