  • Contract with CalPERS to act as the custodian of the County's funds in an irrevocable trust;
  • For FY 2007-08, contribute $5.9 million to CalPERS for this purpose, which will more than cover the County's FY 2007-08 cost of purchasing retiree health insurance and start to amortize (or pay-off) the County's current OPEB unfunded liability over 14 years;
  • Toward the end of FY 2007-08, reevaluate the various OPEB issues and the County's fiscal condition and make a decision to continue amortizing the cost of fully funding the County's OPEB unfunded liability over 14 years or change to a 20 or 30 year amortization schedule; and
  • Consistent with the Board's Budget Policies, $4.1 million of the FY 2007-08 OPEB funding would come from canceling the County's OPEB Designation in the General Fund.
