Birmingham City Council considers early retirement plan

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - The Birmingham City Council will consider a proposal on early retirement at Tuesday's meeting.
     
The proposal includes incentive packages to encourage some "veteran employees" to take early retirement.

If it passes and employees take advantage of the offer, councilors say the city could save millions. Mayor Bell says the program could save up to $15 million.
