After a monthlong break, Berkeley City Council reconvenes for a 7 p.m. meeting Tuesday night. Of the list of items to be addressed, one new item is the proposed Memorandum of Understanding with the Berkeley Police Association.
That union contract has been under negotiation for more than 15 months, stalled primarily due to contentious issues like pension and retiree health benefit changes. Despite the lengthy nature of its debate, the MOU introduces a number of sweeping pension and health benefit changes that is estimated to save the city millions of dollars.
With a long consent calendar and only a small number of items on the action calendar, the council will establish their 2013 meeting schedule and the approval of two settlements on legal proceedings.
Also on the agenda are items related to parking meter fines and triple jeopardy parking violations for tax drivers in Berkeley.
