The director of Jacksonville's Police and Fire Pension Fund says there are problems with a pending change in city law that would change who serves on the fund's board of trustees.
Currently City Council appoints two of the five board members, but a proposed ordinance would allow them to appoint three of the members.

The fund's director, John Keane, said that would break a state law that specifies how these boards should be made up.
In a letter to Council President Stephen Joost, other council members and Mayor Alvin Brown on Thursday, Keane said breaking that law could cost the fund nearly $10 million later this year, and more money in the future.
The was no immediate word from the city on the future of Ordinance 2012-203.
