Voters in Roseville Nov. 5 will weigh placing police and firefighters into a separate retirement system under state law, while Eastpointe voters will determine whether to change the qualifications for city manager. And Eastpointe, Mount Clemens and New Baltimore have contested races for mayor. Separating the public safety employees from the regular municipal pension system in Roseville would provide more protection for the first responders in an economic downturn, city officials said. It also would allow taxpayers to decide whether to separate personnel from equipment costs as part of subsequent ballot issues, should the need arise, officials said.
