Omaha Fire Chief Mike McDonnell’s exit deal comes with the city’s second-highest pension and a pledge to protect his department from cuts — but it’s a step down from the package he nearly had a few weeks ago.
The agreement announced Monday has McDonnell retiring Nov. 8 with a pension based on his 24 years of service, which will amount to about $124,000 per year. In the deal that fell through last month, McDonnell would have received credit for an extra year, bringing his annual pension to more than $130,800.
