An Onondaga County Legislator will not be finishing her full term and she’ll take a $10,000 buyout on the way out the door.

Kathleen Rapp is taking advantage of a retirement incentive that was created to save the county money, but could cost taxpayers more in this case.

The goal of the offer is to encourage longtime employees to retire.

But, with elected officials like Rapp, who has a set salary of about $29-thousand – the benefits are lost.

Rapp is the only legislator who has signed up. 

Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney will appoint a replacement.

Overall, county officials say they will not know the full impact of the incentive package until mid-November.
