Budget relief: firefighters union proposal would trim incentive pay

Published: Wednesday, August 14, 2013 at 12:00 PM.

"The base pay of the firefighters was not reduced by the elimination of the uniform allowance and incentive pay," Traylor said.

Traylor and Poirrier agreed to meet with Mayor David Cadle to finalize the union's proposal and smooth over any differences.

"The main topic of conversation in my office for the past several weeks is how to save firefighter jobs," Cadle said. "I will meet with both of you (Traylor and Poirrier) and work this thing out."

Initially, the City Council asked department heads to trim $1.1 million from their proposals for the next fiscal year budget. Last week, city leaders requested trimming $615,000 from their proposed budgets.
