McMenamin Blasts Police Pension Board, Urges Mayor for New Appointments


The Springfield police pension board is coming under fire for miscalculating pensions… and misusing its expense account.

 

Those are the claims from Alderman Joe McMenamin, who is urging Mayor Mike Houston to appoint two new members to the board from outside the ranks of former officers.

 

McMenamin says the recent revelation that some pension benefits had been figured incorrectly may have led to more than $2 million in overpayments since 1999.

 

He also accuses pension board members of spending tens of thousands of dollars for travel to conferences in far-flung locations like California or Hawaii.
