The Jacksonville City Council Finance Committee resumed Monday after its “fifth week” break, considering contract disparity and pension fund issues, along with a surprisingly controversial bill on human trafficking signs that was deferred after some discussion. • A presentation on investment management expenses of pension funds, including the Police and Fire Pension Fund and the […]

Interim Jacksonville Police and Fire Pension Fund Executive Director Beth McCague  said when she took the job that she didn’t want to be there indefinitely.

On Tuesday, the Jacksonville City Council will attempt to fix its written communications policy, and finalize its ongoing conflict with former Police and Fire Pension Fund head John Keane. The two bills will likely take up the most time in deliberation, with opportunities for both honest disagreement and tub-thumping demagoguery on both. The written communications bill, […]
