Watchdog Group Contests City Council’s Pension Reform Plan

A Jacksonville-based government-watchdog group is challenging the city’s latest pension-reform plan in court.

A judge voided a 30-year pension fund agreement between the city and its police and firefighters in April.

Now, the Concerned Taxpayers of Duval County wants the court to essentially throw out a new Police and Fire Pension Fund proposal submitted by City Councilman Bill Gulliford.
