St. Pete Beach Pension Repayment Plan

Q: How is the city going to find the money to pay off the police pension?

A: 15 years, depending on market returns, according to city manager Mike Bonfield. The city currently pays down the deficit $950,000 a year. If the economy rebounds, it could take less time, but, he says, if the market conditions worsen, it could take longer.
