Upcoming Referendum regarding LOSAP:
LOSAP (Length of Service Award Program) is a program set up to reward volunteer firefighters for their service to our community. In order to benefit from LOSAP, firefighters must gain a certain amount of points every year by attending drills, alarm responses, community functions and serving the Village. LOSAP is meant to act as a retirement benefit for volunteering their time when they retire. Not all are eligible as it is a “point based” program. At the upcoming election, the Village plans to hold a referendum on lowering the entitlement age requirement from 62 to 60 in order to receive their LOSAP award and will be asking if you are in for of this amendment.
