Jacksonville, FL —
City Council was set to vote on pension reforms for police and firefighters, but that vote was delayed due to no response from the state on an outstanding issue pertaining to the bill.The bill is projected to save taxpayers in Jacksonville somewhere around $750-million.Despite everyone’s approval, (administration, city council, pension board) there wasn’t the needed paperwork from the state.What the council did vote on was a similar bill that targets reform for general workers. Those savings are projected at $200-million.The council voted to move the vote on the reforms to late July.
