Expedited Bill 12-17, Fire and Rescue Services - Length
SUBJECT:
of Service Awards Program for Volunteers - Amendments
Expedited Bill 12-17, Fire and Rescue Services - Length of Service Awards Program for
Volunteers - Amendments, sponsored by Lead Sponsor Council President at the request of the
County Executive, was introduced on May 2. Action is scheduled immediately following the
hearing.
Background
The current structure of the Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Association was
established by Bill 36-03, which took effect on January 1, 2005. One of the most innovative
changes in Bill 36-03 was the establishment of a process for Local Fire and Rescue Departments
(LFRD's) to select an authorized representative to represent their interests, and a requirement for
the Fire Chief to negotiate in good faith with the authorized representative on certain issues
affecting LFRD's and their volunteers. The rules for the selection of the representative and the
direct negotiation process are included in County Code Section 21-6. The process was intended
to be similar to collective bargaining with career employees.
The LFRD's selected the Montgomery County Volunteer Fire and Rescue Association
(MCVFRA) as their representative. On January 30, 2007, the Council approved the first
Agreement between the County Government and MCVFRA.
Council Review
Code Section 21-6(p) requires the Executive to submit to the Council any element of an
Agreement that requires an appropriation of funds, may have a future fiscal impact, is inconsistent
with any County law or regulation, or requires the enactment or adoption of any County law or
regulation. Section 21-6(q) directs the Council to notify the parties within 60 days if it disapproves
an Agreement in whole or in part. The Council may by resolution extend the time for action.

On April 3, 2017, the Executive submitted a negotiated Agreement between the Executive
and the MCVFRA, effective July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2020, for Council review and action.
The Agreement includes a provision to recommend for Council approval legislation amending the
Length of Service Awards Program for Volunteers (LOSAP). On April 25, 2017, the Council
adopted Resolution No. 18-784 indicating its intent to approve the negotiated Agreement with the
MCVFRA. See ©11-12.
Discussion
LOSAP is an existing program that provides a small lifetime pension to a local fire and
rescue department volunteer who completes a certain amount of service. LOSAP provides a
retirement benefit, a service-connected disability benefit, a survivor benefit, and a death benefit to
qualified volunteers. Bill 12-17 would increase the retirement benefits for qualified volunteers,
clarify the conditions for earning credits for stand-by duty, and require all payments to be made
by direct deposit. 0MB estimated that the increased LOSAP retirement benefits would cost the
County an additional $23,385 in FY18 and $150,722 over the next 6 years. The requirement to
pay benefits by direct deposit would save the County $25,200 over the next 6 years. See ©8.
Executive's Proposed Amendment
After introduction, the County Attorney's Qffice requested an amendment to implement
the intent of the Agreement with the MCVFRA. The proposed amendment would apply the
increased retirement benefits in the Bill to the calculation of a pension for all eligible volunteers
as required by the Agreement. This amendment is included in lines 40-41 of the proposed amended
Bill at ©15. The proposed amended Bill also includes a technical amendment on line 67 at ©16.
,Council staff recommendation:
enact the Bill with the amendments shown on the Proposed
Amended Bill to implement the Council's prior approval of the LO SAP amendments in the
MCVFRA Agreement.

Legislative Summary
This bill would provide an increase in the Length of Service Awards Program (LOSAP)
available to volunteers who are members of a Local Fire and Rescue District (LFRD),
provide for payment of these benefits through direct deposit only, and amend the law
regarding stand-by duty for volunteers who are members of an LFRD.
2. An estimate of changes in County revenues and expenditures regardless of whether
the revenues or expenditures are assumed in the recommended or approved budget.
Includes source of information, assumptions, and methodologies used.
This bill changes the award payments in LOSAP for qualifying volunteers. For FYl 8,
the actuarially determined cost of these award increases is $23,385, covering the
additional amount required to meet the annual contribution.
This bill would also provide that payment of LOS AP benefits would be direct deposit
only. It is estimated that this change will provide a savings ofup to $4,200 annually,
through decreased administrative costs.
3. Revenue and expenditure estimates covering at least the next 6 fiscal years.
Over the next 6 fiscal years, the actuarially determined cost of these increased benefits is
estimated to be $150,722. Administrative cost savings over the next 6 fiscal years as a
result of switching
to
direct deposit are estimated to be $25,200.
4. An actuarial analysis through the entire amortization period for each bill that would
affect retiree pension or group insurance costs.

Economic Impact Statement
Bill ##-17, Personnel
-
LOSAP (Length of Service Award Program) Benefits
-
Volunteer Fire and Rescue Bargaining Unit
Background:
This legislation would:
provide an increase in length of service benefits to volunteers who are members
of a Local Fire and Rescue District, and
provide for payment of benefits through direct deposit, and
amend the law regarding stand-by duty for volunteers in the volunteer fire and
rescue services bargaining unit.
1. The sources of information, assumptions, and methodologies used.
The assumption is that the Department of Finance (Finance) and the Office of
Management Budget estimates a pay-go amount of $23,835 in FY2018. Finance did
not employ any methodologies in the preparation of the economic impact statement.
2. A description of any variable that could affect the economic impact estimates.
The only variables that could affect the economic impact estimate are changes to the
amount of the increase and whether the individual received "Length of Service
A
ward
Program (LOSAP)" benefit payments
as
of December 31, 2015,
as
currently drafted
in
Bill
##-17.
3. The Bill's positive or negative effect, if any on employment, spending, savings,
investment, incomes, and property values in the County.
Based on the estimated pay-go amount in paragraph
1,
Bill
#-17
would have no
significant impact on employment, spending, savings, investment, incomes, and
property values in the County.
4.
If
a Bill is likely
to
have no economic impact, why is that the case?
Bill
##-17
would have no significant economic impact. See paragraph 3.
