Title
An Ordinance to Amend Section 1:581 of Chapter 18, Employees Retirement System, Title I of the Code of the City of Ann Arbor to Implement Changes Negotiated with the AAPOA related to the Dispatch Contract with Washtenaw County (Ordinance No. ORD-13-10)
Memorandum
The proposed amendments to the pension ordinance implement a benefit for certain eligible dispatchers who moved to employment with Washtenaw County as part of the City/County dispatch consolidation in 2012.  This benefit change was negotiated with the Ann Arbor Police Officers Association, which represented the dispatchers at the City prior to the consolidation.
 
The amendment allows eligible former dispatchers to collect their terminated vested City pension benefits at the time they would have been entitled for retirement from the City, had they remained employed at the City.  The eligible dispatchers will not be considered City retirees and will not be eligible for retiree health care from the City.  Only one of the City's former dispatchers (Dave Williamson) is potentially eligible to receive the benefit.
