Why is the Public Safety Pension program a fee and not collected as a property tax increase?

The City Council, Mayor, and City Manager want to ensure a fair and equitable way to meet the city's Public Safety Pension funding needs. A fee also ensures all users are contributing to the Public Safety Pension funding needs. Property taxes are more challenging to adjust and evaluate in the short term.
