Why does the Town Council need outside expert financial advice?

As of June 30, 2014 the total for the safety and miscellaneous plans was $33.6m. As of June 30, 2019 it was $62.9m. That is an 87% increase (or $30m) in that 5 year period. Moody’s, the leading credit rating agency in the country has independently computed the unfunded pension liability as of June 30, 2019 to be $150m. We should point out that the other valuations were computed by CALPERS.
