City of Palatka needs your help


The City of Palatka has several volunteer boards that help manage and govern the City.  Three of these boards, the City’s police, firefighter, and general employee pension fund oversight boards, help safeguard the retirement benefits of these public servants.  By participating on the boards, members help ensure that these employees receive the retirement benefits they have earned through years of service.

“The pension boards monitor investments of the different funds as they come in every quarter, make recommendations and a review of how the pensions are doing,” said Jill Keiser, Palatka Financial Services supervisor and pension administrator.  “In Florida, everything the government does is public record, and so are the City’s pension funds.  We rely on the public to help us ensure these monies are well managed.”

Members of the pension boards bear a significant fiduciary responsibility.  They must make decisions regarding the investment and management of pension funds to secure the financial stability of the City’s retirement programs.  

Board members ensure that pension funds are managed efficiently and transparently and comply with all relevant regulations.  Their work contributes to Palatka’s overall fiscal accountability.

Currently, the City has openings on the firefighter and police pension boards.  To qualify for the current open positions, you must be a resident of Palatka.  

In addition, there are openings on the City’s Planning Board, City seats on the Putnam County Library Board and Putnam County Better Place Plan Oversight Committee, and the Zoning Board of Appeals.
