REPORT BY MAYOR
I am sure that all of you have read the paper today concerning the Police Pension. There were two errors that you need to know about. 1. City Staff assisted the secretary of the Pension Board, however in accordance with 2-16-2 of the City Code, "It shall be the duty of the members of the Police Pension Board to manage, invest, and control the Police Pension Fund and all monies pertaining thereto in the manner provided by statute and to pay all beneficiaries as provided by law." 2. The City is not responsible for doing audits of the Pension Fund every 2 years. The Illinois Department of Insurance has the responsibility to do audits. They would like to do on-site audits every other year, but only have 4 auditors to audit 583 pension funds. They have not done an audit in East Moline since 1990.
