But voted not to improve employee retirement. Par for the course with this council and mayor. Drunk drivers and tax frauds.

Happened in last week. Council elected not to raise multiplier for retirement from 1.75 to 2.0 while the average in metro Atlanta is 2.5.

It was in administrative meeting. The elected not to even consider it for a vote. The police department has had over 100% turnover in the last ten years. That’s an astronomical figure when you consider each time that happens $75,000 walks out of the door.

Not to mention, the city council and mayor commissioned the Georgia Municipal Association to study the city’s retirement. In the report it was learned that the city is roughly 95% paid off in regard to retirement cost as less than 20% of city employees actually retire and draw. Further, they also learned that most cities are only about 60-70% paid off and the city is in a great position to increase retirement and the average multiplier is 2.5% with several being as high as 3.0%. The council elected to ignore this and created a magic number to justify no action by coming up with a figure that would result if the entire city retired today.
