Title
An Ordinance to Amend Sections 1:553(1) and (3) of Chapter 18 (Employees Retirement System), Title I of the Code of the City of Ann Arbor to Implement a Change in Board Composition Approved by Ballot Measure and Collective Bargaining (Ordinance No. ORD-15-10)
Memorandum
The proposed amendments to the pension ordinance change the pension board composition to eliminate the City Administrator from the board, decrease the number of general city member trustees from two to one, and increase the number of citizen members trustees from three to five. The ordinance changes also make clear that retirees may serve as trustees if elected by the active members.

On November 8, 2011, a Charter amendment was approved by the voters restructuring the membership of the Pension Board as noted above. Under Michigan law, implementation of the Charter amendment required the further step of negotiation the change with all of the City's collective bargaining units. Negotiations have now been completed and the necessary ordinance amendments are being presented to City Council for action.
