CBS3 reports Mayor Nutter has decided not to challenge an arbitrator's decision awarding police officers a shiny new contract. "While the contract will be costly to the city, with raises totaling $123 million over five years, Mayor Nutter said an appeal would risk losing changes to pension and health benefits. 'The city government must now make its decisions based on the longer term fiscal health of the city and watch out for the taxpayers' dollars as opposed to make the shorter term, easier decision,' Mayor Nutter said. An arbitrator's ruling on the firefighters' contract is expected in the spring."
It's the 25th anniversary of MOVE, but the incident is being overshadowed by the Philadelphia Police Department's brand-spankin'-new scandals and bouts with stupidity.
