BY COUNCILOR STEWART:
RESOLVED, that the proper city officials are authorized to accept the donation of $9,000 from Clyde Narhi in appreciation of health care benefits provided to him as a retired city employee, said sum to be deposited in the Group Health Fund 630-036-1660-4660.
FURTHER RESOLVED, that the city of Duluth expresses its appreciation to Mr. Narhi for his contribution and the public spirit it represents.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This resolution is to authorize the acceptance of the donation of $9,000 from Clyde Narhi, a retired city employee, to be deposited in the city’s group health fund.
Mr. Narhi experienced medical expenses which would have been financially taxing for him and his family but for the medical health care benefits available to him as a retired employee. Mr. Narhi, in appreciation of this benefit, believes that retirees such as himself, who receive major benefits from the health care fund, should voluntarily contribute to that fund. Consequently Mr. Narhi volunteered a contribution of $9,000 toward the cost of providing this benefit to him.
