2012 Ballot Measure
Retirement Reform and Related Proposed Ballot Measure Information

The City has two retirement systems that provide defined retirement benefits to eligible employees. The Police and Fire Department Retirement Plan provides benefits to sworn employees in the Police and Fire Department, and the Federated City Employees' Retirement System provides benefits to all non-sworn eligible employees.

Due to the significant cost to the City, the Administration has been engaged in retirement reform efforts to ensure that the costs of retirement benefits are sustainable in the long-term.
