The Municipal Firefighters' Pension Trust Fund Board of Trustees was created by Florida Statutes, 175.061. The Board is composed of five members, two of whom are residents of the City* and appointed by Council; two full time firefighters who are elected by the majority of the members of the plan**; and the fifth member, who is not required to be a City resident, is chosen by a majority of the four members and ratified by Council. Members of this board must file Financial Disclosure Form F upon appointment, annually by July 1 for the previous year ending December 31, and the final Form F1 within 60 days of leaving the board.

Each member shall serve as a trustee for a period of four years from appointment all expiring in December of their respective term, as amended by Policy No. 4-2008 adopted by City Council 10/6/2008 and pursuant to changes to the Firefighters’ Retirement Trust Fund made via Ordinance No. 754-C, adopted by Council on 04/05/10.***

This board is a decision-making public body responsible for all pension trust fund management and administration of the plan pursuant to Chapter 175, Florida Statutes. The board shall also make recommendations or provide guidance to City Council as it relates to revisions to the member's pension plan, which is approved by the City.
