3 Mayor Alvin Brown says it's the city's most pressing and expensive problem... Pension Reform. And today, he took more steps, trying to resolve the 1 point 7 billion dollar deficit. It was the first of a series of meetings with the police and fire pension board, after the task force recommended a tax increase. But the mayor and board want to look at other solutions. Channel 4's Jim Piggott shows us what they hope to achieve. 3 00-0512-1733-3858-1:041:20- 1:251:30-1:35Both sides in this.the mayors office and the police and fire pension board say they want to get something from this .. they are going to met five more times and in that they hope to come up with pension reform.Right now the talks were good natured and hopeful. But during the next few weeks it could get a bit angry.John Keane who oversees the police and fire pension fund.says they are not going to doing any collective bargaining for the union here.. but he does says there will likely be some changes made to pension plans new police and firefightersFuture can expect there will be a change in the benefit structure. Times have changes and people are living longer that is understandable. for current members under a benefit structure we are not interested in changing that. that could involve more being paid by individual employees into the fund..but all of that is what this panel hopes to work out .My Hope is that we would have an agreement that we could work towards finishing up and finally get this done. Last summer, these meetings were held illegally behind close doors. But a lawsuit by the Florida Times Union put a stop to that.. and now the meetings are being held out in the open.. and its up to this man to try and get all sides to agree to plan. Trying to help them work through the problems some we have tried to work through in the past. which I am very optimistic about. Some are very difficult we still would not be here .It's going to be a task for them they say but they believe something is going to come out of this . All of this would have to go though city council and they would have to give there stamp of approval. Jim Piggott Ch 4 the local station. 3 local station.
