New proposal to fix Cincinnati's pension system

A Cincinnati Council member said he had a plan to put the city's retirement system on a path of solvency.  Christopher Smitherman introduced his motion Tuesday during a council committee meeting.

One of his proposals is to end the three percent compound cost-of-living adjustments given to most retirees each year.  Smitherman would change that to a simple COLA tied to the consumer price index and not exceeding two percent per year.  Those adjustments would also be suspended for three years if his plan is approved.
