The Lancaster Village Board Monday evening approved pay and retirement agreements with Police Chief William B. Hastrich and Richard C. Bulman, public works director.

Hastrich will retire Aug. 1, 1992, and Bulman June 1, 1993.

Trustee Gregg R. Smith, head of the Village Board's Personnel Committee, said that under the agreements the village's costs would be $18,000 less than if the two men retired without a formal settlement.

Village Attorney Anthony M. Nosek said the agreements provide village payments to be spread over several years, instead of being made all at once.

Hastrich's agreement sets his salary at $52,100 for the current fiscal year through May 31; at $57,310 for the 1991-92 fiscal year, and $11,022 for the period of June and July 1992. His reimbursement for unused sick days at retirement will be limited to 200 days.

Bulman's agreement sets his salary at $51,612 for the current fiscal year ending May 31, with a $3,697 lump payment; $55,594 for the 1991-92 fiscal year, and $57,278 for 1992-93. His reimbursement for unused sick days will be limited to 325 as of last June 1, and days accumulated, up to 15 a year, after that date.

Five board members voted to approve the agreements. Trustees Darlene L. Humphrey and Edward G. Meyer abstained.

The village's response to Mary Lou Carter's complaint of age discrimination was filed Monday with the state Human Rights Division, Nosek reported.

Mrs. Carter, 47, was fired in January as Village Court clerk.

An affidavit signed by Smith said six of the nine employees hired by the board's present majority are over age 40. When Mrs. Carter was fired, the job was offered to a woman in her 60s, but she did not wish to work full time, Smith added.

The board renewed services of Municipal Insurance Consultants Inc. for 1991 at up to $7,500. Mayor Arthur K. Posluszny said that during its first year of service, the firm reduced village insurance costs by $30,000 while coverage was increased.
