Retirement Board Delays Action On Prignano's Pension

This is the second time in a week that the retirement board has put off action on Prignano's pension.
The board is considering taking the pension away  because some members feel Prignano's service to the city was less than honorable.
The retirement board met this morning at city hall to discuss Prignano's $60,000 pension. The issue arose due to PrignanoÔŅĹs testimony during the Plunder Dome corruption trial that he had helped two police officers, perhaps three find answers to questions on promotion exams.
The retirement board administrator said he had notified Prignano by certified letter of today's meeting.
Since Prignano was out of town, his lawyer was unavailable and the four pages were missing from a transcript of Prignano's Plunder Dome testimony, the board decided to put off a decision today.
The board will meet again on Wednesday, January 8th.
Board members seemed inclined to proceed on that date whether Prignano shows up for the hearing or not.
