LAKEPORT, Calif. – Nearly a year after the Lakeport City Council voted not to follow through on an agreement to upgrade the retirement plan for the city's police officers, the Lakeport Police Officers Association has filed a lawsuit against the city and the council, seeking to enforce the agreement's terms.



The Lakeport Police Officers Association, along with Operating Engineers Local Union No. 3 – of which the association is a member – filed the suit against the city and the Lakeport City Council in Lake County Superior Court on June 1.




“It's straightforward and simple, they're trying to enforce the terms of their labor agreement with the city,” said Joseph Rose of the Rose Law Firm, who is representing the police and Operating Engineers.
