(KMOV) – A proposed bill at an aldermanic committee meeting on Tuesday could potentially reduce the amount of money the city has to pay into the firefighters’ pension plan.

The city says it’s been paying an inflated rate because of the way the union allocates funds. The firefighters say the changes the city wants would deplete the future benefits fund for widows and dependent children.

The city denies the move is in retaliation for current litigation with the fire department over sick pay, and says the bill will only bring the union into compliance with existing state law.
