The City of Springfield is seeking input from the public on the Police and Firefighters Pension issue in three different ways.
They will be mailing out an election follow up survey to randomly selected voters. Those voters who receive a survey will be asked to mail it back to the City in an enclosed envelope or fill it out on the Internet. The deadline for returning the mailed surveys is 5:00 p.m. on Friday, March 6.
A short survey regarding the February 3, ballot proposal is available the City's homepage to those interested in filling it out or, if you'd prefer, you can go to the Busch Building at 840 Boonville Avenue and pick up a copy. That survey will be posted, online, through 5:00 p.m. on Friday, March 6.
Or, if you really want to get involved, you can apply to participate on the Police/Fire Pension Fund Citizens Task Force by submitting an online application, that form is also available at the City's homepage. The deadline to submit those applications is 5:00 p.m. on Monday, March 9. Of course, there aren't any promises you'll be one of the citizens chosen to serve on that task force but you'll never know unless you try.
Better git busy.
