RESOLUTION NO. RS2006-1580
A resolution requesting the Metropolitan Employee Benefit Board to have an actuarial study performed to determine the cost of including judicial court officers in the fire and police pension plan.
WHEREAS, sworn police officers and firefighters have a different pension plan than general government and non-emergency employees; and
