      Pension Liability Payoff and a Related Schedule Proposal (Gary Wolff & Wendy Sommer)

      Staff recommends that the P&A and P&O Committees recommend that the WMA direct staff at its November 18, 2015 meeting to follow the schedule presented in the staff report, which is intended as a decision making framework based on currently available information; and recommend that the WMA approve the proposed changes to reserves, and payment to PERS, when the mid-year budget revisions are brought before them on December 16, 2015.
      A recommendation from the P&O to this effect will be understood by staff as direction by the Recycling Board with respect to preparation of its part of the combined agency budget proposals for FY16/17 and FY17/18.  Should future modifications to the schedule and associated actions be needed, they will be discussed with the Board.
