Benefits

The City of Flagstaff is part of a consortium, the Northern Arizona Public Employees Benefit Trust (NAPEBT), which was formed to provide comprehensive and cost-effective benefits to employees of the City of Flagstaff, Coconino County, the Flagstaff Housing Authority, Coconino County Community College, Flagstaff Unified School District, NAIPTA, and Coconino County Accommodation School by combining resources and leveraging buying power.

The result is a better benefits package than any of the employers could offer individually, which keeps benefits costs down for employees.
