I recommend that ALL Springfield residents get a tax exempt card from this additional 1% since residents have paid for this once already and through mismanagement and neglect we are having to fund it again.
Springfield City Manager Greg Burris will hold a news conference at 2:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 23, to discuss a proposal for addressing the funding shortfall in the City’s Police and Fire Pension System.
The news conference will take place in City Council Chambers in Historic City Hall. The news conference will feature the Powerpoint presentation that Burris will be showing to community groups, followed by questions and answers.
The news conference will include representatives from the Police Officer’s & Firefighter’s Retirement System Board of Trustees and the Police and Fire departments.
The news conference will air live on TV23, Mediacom Channel 23, and on the City’s Web site at: www.springfieldmo.gov/
The Board of Trustees has established a new Web site with extensive background information about the pension system. This new section is located on the City Web site at: www.springfieldmo.gov/egov/
