Contract for benefits plan gets county OK

The Washington County Commissioners Tuesday awarded a $120,050 contract to a company that will administer a "defined benefit retirement plan for Washington County."

The plan is for current and former county employees.

The contract was awarded to MacKay Shields LLC of New York, which submitted the lowest of 11 bids. The contract has an option for two one-year renewals, so the contract could cost a total of $360,150 if the company is used for all three years.
