(KMOV) – Firefighters and the aldermanic president have a deal to save money on the Firefighters Pension but Mayor Francis Slay says he is not happy with the new agreement.

The agreement doesn’t touch the pensions for current retirees and active firefighters would have a small reduction in college funding while on disability, but future firefighters would have reduced benefits which is clause Slay says he opposes.

City officials say all parties agree that something must be done soon to control the rising pension costs.
