Leaders in Oak Island voted Wednesday to eliminate health insurance coverage for town employees that choose to retire.
Starting immediately, any new hires will not receive health insurance premiums if they choose to retire.
Town leaders decided to also eliminate spouse coverage for new hires and current employees beginning on July 1, 2015.
Under the former town policy, retirees were covered up until age 65.
