Mayor Norton Speaks Out On Mistakes

Mistakes were made, but they won't be repeated--that from Mayor Mel Norton regarding a so-called "sneaky" clause included in a list of pension reforms submitted to the superintendent of pensions. The clause stipulating highly-paid city staffers could retire early with full benefits was not voted on by council.

Norton says he appreciates the gravity of a clause like that making it through and there were clearly numerous mistakes that beg thorough investigation.

The Mayor is reportedly behind enforcing a by law to make sure councilors have enough time to look over documents before being asked to vote.
