Raise approved for all EMS employees
Placeholder Image
A new pay scale has been adopted for Emergency Medical Service employees, the move prompting a county commissioner who resigned in protest last month to return to the fold. In a vote of 12-1, the DeKalb County Commission approved a plan that will set up a new pay scale which, in most cases will mean double digit percent increases in EMS salaries although it will also mean a reduction in overtime hours the county will pay out going forward. The plan also provides a starting point whereby employees will know what their starting pay will be and then know exactly, based on years of service, how much they will be making.
