This summer the City of San Angelo sought bids on its benefit plans, which include medical, dental and life insurance. Just before and after it bid out a number of jobs, changing them to contractor opportunities. How many paid positions shifted from benefits to no benefit in this series of moves? How many more are planned to go to contractor, i.e. no benefit status?
The City states it wants to be competitive with pay, which includes benefits. It appears more and more people will be working for the city in a benefit-less role
Update 8-12-14: San Angelo Live reported "City employees will be awarded a 5 percent pay raise this year." Contractors are not employees.
Update 8-16-14: Add Plumbers to the list of contracted services.
