If you are absent from service for more than five years during any period of six consecutive years since last becoming a member...or if you withdraw your accumulated contributions or...if you retire under the provisions of this Ordinance, you will no longer be considered a member of the System.

The System is administered by a Board of Trustees appointed by City Council. The Board will adopt such rules as may be necessary and desirable for the proper and equitable administration of the System.

The Board of Trustees meets the second Wednesday of each month unless otherwise posted.
