Maysville Firefighters Paid $155,000 in Overtime
In order to comply with an Kentucky Supreme Court ruling, the city of Maysville will pay $155,081 for overtime wages on incentive pay to fire fighters. Complying with the ruling is an issue municipalities across the state have faced since the Kentucky Labor Cabinet changed the way fire fighters were to be paid overtime on incentive pay in 2004. Plaintiffs in the case against the Labor Cabinet are the cities of Richmond, Winchester, Florence, Nicholasville, Glasgow, Cynthiana, Georgetown, Paris, Somerset and Danville; Madison County; and the Central Campbell County Fire District.
