Corinth board adopts fire, police holiday pay changes

By NEMS Daily Journal

CORINTH – A lengthy work session for Corinth aldermen on Wednesday resulted in changes to how firefighters and police officers are compensated for holidays.
City officials sought to decrease the city’s liability for the number of hours these public safety employees are able to accrue and carry on the city’s budget.
The resulting policy changes place more of the holiday compensation in leave time rather than actual hours paid. A policy specifically for new hires also was implemented.
Details of the changes are being explained to the departments by the fire chief and police chief, but will not be implemented until they are reviewed by the attorney general’s office.
