Council President Ben Hueso has agreed to docket the pension-related items proposed by Councilwoman Donna Frye, which I wrote about earlier today.

Hueso’s spokeswoman, Michelle Ganon, said they will be discussed Jan. 27, according to a memo sent to Frye today.

The talks will take place in closed session so City Attorney Jan Goldsmith can tell council members how legal rulings and ongoing lawsuits might affect Frye’s proposals regarding the deferred retirement option program, known as DROP, and employees’ purchase of service credits.

Frye had cited ex-Council President Scott Peters’ refusal to docket the items as part of the need for reforms to council rules. Hueso later said it would have been irresponsible to discuss them in open session because of the litigation.
