A cash-strapped City Hall is looking for savings within its employees’ pension plans.
City commissioners will hold a workshop this afternoon, where they’ll discuss a pension reduction that could save city taxpayers more than $230 million over 30 years.
Currently, the city expects to pay $279 million to retired general employees for the next 30 years. Police department retirees would earn $316 million over that same period.
The commission will discuss two savings proposals, which would cut up to $106 million from the general employees’ pensions and $127 million from the police pensions.
The workshop will be held today at 4 p.m. at City Hall, 1565 First St., Sarasota.
