A new contract for area first responders.
Marysville firefighters and police officers sign off on a new contract with city officials. Both departments receive a 20 percent salary increase, this year.
As part of the deal, they get a 10 percent increase, retroactive to July 1, 2019. On New Year’s Day, their salaries went up another 5 percent and will again on July 1.
It’s another sign the meltdown of 2008 has passed…as city governments across the state loosen city coffers to address issues like this, again.
