I don't believe that the City is on the hook for the individual employees' pensions. They pay into PERS as a system. The think the State is on the hook for the penions. Of course if the City has a pension beyond PERS that would be different.

I think the article is trying to say something about retiree medical benefits, but a City Attorney's contract may spell out different terms than what is in the following link: Web Link

"The city began setting funds aside to pay for retiree medical benefits in 1990. By the end of the 2008-09 fiscal year those reserves are expected to be $48.2 million."

The City is ahead although some say their liability is only partially funded. I heard that PUSD has completely unfunded liabilities in this arena.

As much as I love Pleasanton, you would have to pay me a ton of money to leave San Luis Obispo. Such a beautiful area, the town feel is similar to Pleasanton.

M.Roush was forced into retirement last year after denying a civil claim that was valid. The City of Pleasanton
was supposed to pay, but figured a cover-up would work.
But it didn't. The City of Pleasantons co-conspiritor
S&S Towing (Owner Louis Chavier) was sued last year for
his aiding in Grand Theft Auto. Thats why M. Frazier
dismantled the Special Investigations Unit. Judge Hughy Walker knowingly signed a bogus search warrent to re-accertain
ILLEGAL SPYING Equipment. Only the car that the S.U.I. stoled
had an active cellular phone clandestinely placed inside.
"GIVE THE (BLANK) THREE DAYS..." -S.U.I. BIGGOT
And then who rises of his Bench to threaten and directly accuse
of a crime but... well you know who. And then instructs his
Sheriff to hold back one court-date slip in the hopes that
a non-appearance would allow for a bench warrent to be issued.
And then the whole B.S. case fell apart when TIM MARTINS P.P.D.
Officer started LYING UNDER OATH. See what happens when you back-door a Judge and he ADMITS IT IN OPEN COURT? It's a good thing that who the Judge and the S.I.U. were setting up documented everything.
So while M. Roush works case files out of Stockton... don't ask
who put his Chump-ass there. Yes this is something for
The Committee on Judicial Performance to hear, P. weekly.
Looks like the cocksuckery didn't end with Judge Hyde's
sorry ass. But did one better. Because I could't trust people
like W. Petzel who tried to help Louis Chavier out the collusion.
I attribute that to Chaviers KNOWN AFFILIATIONS. So now the U.S.
Supreme Court is going to take away the Cellular Phone evesdropping,
so called GPS trackers from ALL LAW ENFORCEMENT. So cheers,
Pleasanton Weekly! You should be so privied to such information.
I mean,... you shouldn't be the last to know the good
