A look at some of the issues Jacksonville's City Council considered Tuesday:
Issue: City pension investments
What it means: Trustees of the general employee pension system wanted permission to invest up to 10 percent of the fund in "alternative" investments that could include hedge funds and private equity funds.
Bill No. 2011-108
Action: Deferred until May 10
Issue: Police training money
What it means: The council was asked to approve using $200,000 from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for specialized training of police and correctional officers.
Bill No. 2011-175
Issue: Selling city land
What it means: The council was asked to let the city sell flood-prone property on McCoys Creek Boulevard near the new Fire Station 5 without a bidding process.
