Wednesday, March 30, 2011
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- The city of Houston is looking to trim police and firefighter pensions to help meet a budget shortfall.According to the Houston Chronicle, Mayor Annise Parker asked HFD's pension board for permission to cut $14 million from the city's retirement contributions next year. The board was also told the city would be laying off up to 300 firefighters and closing some stations.
Firefighters rejected a request for a five million dollar reduction last year.
