CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 3

 Meeting Date:  August 8, 2000

 Subject/Title:    Second reading of Ordinance No. 638 of the City Council of the City of Brentwood Authorizing an Amendment to the Contract between the Board of Administration California Public Employees’ Retirement System and the City Council of the City of Brentwood                            

Submitted by:   Patti Standley, Human Resources Manager                              

Approved by:    Jon Elam, City Manager

 RECOMMENDATION

Adopt Ordinance No. 638 to approve amendment of the contract between the City of Brentwood and the Board of Administration of the California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS) as agreed during the meet and confer process.

 PREVIOUS ACTION

The City of Brentwood adopted Resolution No. 2108, providing for the notice of intention to approve a contract amendment, and held the first reading of Ordinance No. 638 to approve amendment of the contract between the City of Brentwood and the Board of Administration of the California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS) at the June 27, 2000 Council meeting. 

 BACKGROUND

Through the meet and confer process, bargaining units and employee groups that contain employees defined by CalPERS as “safety” members requested that the City amend the CalPERS retirement benefit from the 2% at 50 Formula to the 3% at 50 Formula. 

 Also through the meet and confer process, a non-safety bargaining unit requested that the City amend its contract with CalPERS to provide the optional benefit for Military Service Credit as Public Service for all CalPERS members enrolled through the City of Brentwood.  The Military Service Credit optional benefit will not result in employer costs and is fully funded by eligible employees.  The City agreed to process both amendments to the contract

The 3% @ 50 Formula contract amendment will result in the following changes:  The Present Value of Benefits which represents the total dollars needed today to fund future benefits for current members of the plan, results in an estimated change in the amount of $1,042,943.  This amount will be paid over a twenty-year period through a 7.841% increase in the employer rate.  The change in the Unfunded Accrued Liability is estimated at $428,777.   The Unfunded Accrued Liability is actually not a negative to the bottom-line as Brentwood’s account assets continue to hold the account ahead of schedule by $41,224.  Initial costs for fiscal year 2000/01 (July 1, 2000 through June 30, 2001), are estimated at $114,371.
