Commissioners are considering changes to health benefits as a way to make up for the city's budget shortfall.
"We're just hoping we can work something out that the city would agree to pay their equal part like they've always said they would do," said Donald Campbell, retired firefighter.
The task for Commissioners is staying out of debt and making up a projected 2.7 million dollar shortfall.
The task for retirees is staying out of debt and paying all their bills.
"When you get on a fixed income of say like I am of $1500 a month and your health insurance is $600 a month, your house payment is $400 a month. It doesn't take long until you get into negatives a month," said Tommy Hines, retired firefighter.
City Staff presented three options at the meeting. In the end, City Commissioners requested them to come back with more options in July that would scale back budget saving on the current proposal.
