If Delphi could cut retirement benefits for its employees (although, in a politically-motivated move coordinated by the Obama (mal)administration, they principally cut benefits to non-union workers), then I see no reason why a municipality cannot do the same.  To do otherwise would be tantamount to turning the taxpaying residents of San Bernardino into tenured servants (i.e., slaves) to Calpers.
