Flagstaff City Council held the first day of its two-day budget retreat on Thursday. During the day, the council heard updates on a number of topics, including urban pensions. Rick Tadder, director of city government services, said the city now has enough funding for 100 percent of pensions and encouraged budget adjustments to raise funds to 105 percent, a move the council supported. In addition, the council supported the shifting of the city's recession plan to the lowest point “minor” from the second “moderate” point on a five point scale. The council will continue its budget withdrawal on Friday, where it will discuss aid funding from the CARES law as well as policing. Thursday's discussion of the police department raised concerns about high sales among police officers.
