A new health incentive for city government employees gives them a chance to net some cash for being physically fit. A total of 31 employees passed a fitness test in June and will share $19,100.“It’s a voluntary program,” said city administrator David Rutherford. “Everyone who signed up to take a test passed.”The program called Healthy Tomorrow Begins Today started this year and has two standard fitness assessment levels, including the cooper level which is the highest on the test.
