Local police officers who were serving 16 years ago may soon be receiving a check for reimbursement of overpayments they made to their pension plans.
St. Marys City Council unanimously approved a request for reimbursement during their Monday evening meeting.
The $35,582 overpayment was only recently discovered, however with 6 percent annual interest over 16 years, the amount totals $45,600.
During the consolidation of the borough and township into the City of St. Marys, both police departments had their own distinct pension plans, the terms of which were not the same between them.
