Bayport administrator down to last court chance in pension battle

Bayport City Administrator Mike McGuire, who’s caught in a public pension battle, has asked the Minnesota Supreme Court to review his case.

He’s lost earlier court rulings and this is his last chance, says the Stillwater Gazette.

He resigned from the job in 2005 because he had sufficient service years to retire but then was hired as an independent contractor. He began collecting state pension payments, but in 2007 he was told that he owed the $112,000 because he did not wait a full 30 days after retiring to return to work for the city.

He says many people have urged him to keep fighting because he was caught up by a “bad law.”
