Did city management lie to the public regarding pension reform? Around Town, posted by Arnold, a resident of the Another Pleasanton neighborhood neighborhood, on Nov 17, 2012 at 12:23 am
Yes! The city of Pleasanton and the management team have claimed public safety consecions that do not exist. The claimed cost concessions that were published in the Pleasanton Weekly are a fraud. As advertised by city staff, there were cost savings but unfortunately those savings were/are offset by increased costs due to 2 EXTRA WEEKS of paid vacation (which increases the already out of control overtime costs), and also provides an additional 2.5% of salary for which employees were already paid.
What I'm trying to articulate is that while the police & fire departments are claiming great sacrafice it couldn't be further the truth. The tax payers are making the ultimate sacrafice to allow these groups to retire at age 50.
