Mayor Nutter is taking on City Council and other elected officials on two fronts -- cars and DROP.
Nutter confirmed that he plans to tomorrow introduce legislation that would disqualify elected officials from entering the Deferred Retirement Option Program, a city program that provides workers with a lump-sum payment upon retirement.
"It appears to me that this kind of program was not designed for elected officials," Nutter said. "The primary purpose of a having program like this is proper management of general workforce."
Nutter stressed that nothing would change for the ten elected officials -- among them Council Members Anna Verna, Marion Tasco and Frank Rizzo -- currently enrolled in DROP. And other eligible officials could still sign up by the end of the year.
