The Pension Oversight Committee was established on February 19, 2013 by the Costa Mesa City Council to focus on public employee pension-related matters with a focus on the following:

  • Review annual and long-term pension and financial matters as it pertains to the City's CalPERS retirement unfunded pension obligations.
  • Ensure the City maintains adequate reserves and ratios per City Council guidelines.
  • Review negotiated pension and compensation packages as it pertains to each employee bargaining unit.
  • Evaluate and advise the City Council on annual changes to pension costs.

The Pension Oversight Committee is composed of nine voting members and the Mayor or the Mayor's designee. The Committee meets the second Wednesday, every other month at 4:45 p.m. in Conference Room 1A, located in City Hall.  (Please note that on August 10, 2016, the Committee voted to change the meetings from every month, to every other month.)
