All Naperville Police Chief Bob Marshall wants for Christmas is the right to continue collecting his Naperville police pension concurrently with serving as chief.

And that may be right around the time he learns if his wish cam true.

The Naperville Police Pension Board Tuesday began the process of sorting out whether Marshall's police pension payouts, from his 28 years of service, will continue or cease until Marshall hangs up his badge for good.

They likely won't decide the case until mid-December.

When he retired from the police department, Marshall immediately joined the city's administrative ranks as assistant city manager, a position he held until being sworn in as chief on May 18.

He currently is paid $151,000 a year while also collecting his pension from the police department. His police pension has totaled roughly $50,000 since May 18.

His municipal pension from his seven years as assistant city manager is held in the Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund.

Tuesday's hearing was prompted by state's Department of Insurance position that Marshall is once again a police officer and his pension payouts must cease until he retires as chief.

During Tuesday's hearing, pension board president Det. Donald Bisch promised to hear all of the evidence and lead an impartial hearing. the city of Naperville and the State's Department of Insurance were also both allowed to join the proceedings moving forward.

The five-person board includes two members appointed by the city council, two active police personnel and one current beneficiary of the Police Pension Fund.

All parties will present evidence and put on their case during the case's next continued date, 2 p.m. on Nov. 27.

The board will meet again on Dec. 18 to adjudicate the case and deliberate Marshall's pension eligibility.
