FOP CLAMBAKE - SEP 18

clams

This year, the FOP clambake is scheduled for September 18th @ The Spinning Wheel. As many of you know, the PBA pays for our active members and social members (retirees) to attend this event. In years past, members would sign in at the front table of the clambake to keep track of attendance. After the event, the FOP would provide the PBA the list of names, and the PBA would reimburse the FOP. While viewing last year's list, there were a number of names on the sign-in sheet that were illegible, which prevented us from being able to confirm that we were only paying for our members and retirees. After consulting with the Board of Directors, we have decided to institute a new format this year.

 

We are asking all of our members to email PBA Recording Secretary Kristie Froio (kjfroio10@gmail.com) and provide their name and address by Saturday, August 6th. Those who provide this information to Secretary Froio by this date will be mailed a ticket to present at the FOP head table, which will confirm your attendance and allow us to reimburse the FOP. Those who do not present their ticket to the FOP table will be responsible for payment.

 

I understand that some may view this as an inconvenience, but the concept of this format is to ensure that we are only paying for SPD/PBA members/retirees. If you are aware of retirees who typically attend the FOP clambake but aren't part of this email chain, please feel free to forward this info to them.

 

All the best, Joseph Moran - PBA President

INSURANCE NOTE- JUN 15

SPD has started to contact members with forms to update their life insurance information. This is legitimate. I encourage everyone to complete the form and return it ASAP. A few years ago, a member contacted me because he hadn't changed his beneficiary from wife #1; he was on wife #5 at the time.

 

Just to recap, when you retire, you carry a no-cost life insurance policy with you. Retirees have $10,000 in coverage. There is no expiration. There used to be more depending on your age, but I've been told this is a flat rate now.

CITY OF SYRACUSE LIFE INSURANCE - MAY 14

SPD has started to contact members with forms to update their life insurance information. This is legitimate. I encourage everyone to complete the form and return it ASAP. A few years ago, a member contacted me because he hadn't changed his beneficiary from wife #1; he was on wife #5 at the time.

SPECIAL PATROL OFFICER

After months of work, I was finally able to sign a Memorandum of Agreement with Chief Buckner permitting our retirees to work Dome events/traffic control. For those who are interested, please complete this application and return it to the PBA (PO Box 11218, Syracuse, NY 13218). The application states to return it to City Hall, but if you send it to me, I will make sure it gets filed properly.

 

When completing the application, under the "Employment Data" section, select Other (list), and next to the selection, write "SPO". Retirees will be called in "on an as-needed" basis to supplement details, which will help our active members from being ordered in. As I have previously explained, we are having a very difficult time filling Dome related events due to our staffing crisis. The rate is $28/hr, which is the current rate for our SPO's who work for SPD. If you have any questions, please let me know.
