Current, future Sylvania police, fire to earn more
To become more competitive with other law enforcement and fire department agencies in the area, the city of Sylvania has increased the pay for those currently employed with the system and for future employees.
Public Safety Director Gary Weaver and City Manager Stacy Mathis reviewed the pay scale of others in the county and outside in order to make the department more competitive during the hiring process.
Weaver said employees have left the department over the years for more money at other agencies.
He said he hopes this pay increase will deter some in the future from making the same decision based primarily on pay.
The previous starting pay for a police officer with the department was $13.06 an hour for an annual $28,535.67. The city council-approved increasenow makes it $14.78 an hour for $32,285.49 annually.
