Houston: Police Pension Board Should Recover Overpayments, But Not From Cops Themselves

Springfield Mayor Mike Houston suggests the city’s police pension board might want to go after anyone who provided faulty legal advice that led to thousands of dollars in pension overpayments. 


The pension board miscalculated how much of a pension boost should go to officers who retired under a temporary twice-yearly pay spike written into their contracts.  As a result, the pension fund paid out at least $16,000 too much to around a dozen cops. 


Houston has said the board should try to recover the money.  He now says it shouldn’t necessarily go after the cops themselves, but perhaps find another route to recover the money. 


Houston says he hasn’t been told what the pension board intends to do.  He recently appointed city budget director Bill McCarty to serve on that board, but the board hasn’t met since McCarty was chosen.
