AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           January 9, 2012

 

From:                          Jerry Boop, Finance Director, CPA, CGFO

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing a contribution of $62,919.91 to fund the 175 Fire Pension Plan

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of a contribution of $62,919.91, which is the actuarial amount needed to complete funding for the 2010-11 plan year.

 

Analysis:

Foster & Foster was requested to provide an actuarial estimate of City contributions for Fiscal Year ending September 30, 2011.  The attached summary of report, from the actuarial valuation dated October 1, 2011, reflects that the plan was underfunded by $62,919.91.  The shortfall is directly attributable to poor market performance during the month of September and the year ending financial value of plan assets.

 

 

Florida Statutes, Chapter 175.091(d) requires the City to maintain certain minimum benefit levels and fund any actuarial deficiency shown by an actuarial valuation as provided in part VII of Chapter 112.

 

Options:

1.  Approve the contribution to the 175 Fire Pension Plan; or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

A budget adjustment of $62,919.91 from fund balance will be necessary to cover the difference.
