The City Council last week approved a resolution giving pay raises to Stillwater’s paid on-call firefighters.
The wage increases are in line with comparable agencies, and can be implemented within the fire department’s current budget, Fire Chief Stu Glaser told the Council. The paid on-call firefighters have not had a pay increase in more than seven years.
City Administrator Larry Hansen recommended the council approve the resolution for pay increases.
Here's how the resolution breaks down:Position Wage per 2005 resolution Wage Effective Feb. 1 Probationary Firefighter $9.75 per hour $12.25 per hour Firefighter $10.25 per hour $13.25 per hour Firefighter/Engineer $11.25 per hour $14.50 per hour Lieutenant $11.75 per hour $15.75 per hour Captain $12.25 per hour $16.75 per hour Assistant Chief $13.25 per hour $17.75 per hour
