Rosemount Firefighters get a raise
The Rosemount City Council approved a pay raise Monday for the city's firefighters. Going forward, firefighters will receive $6 per call and drill instead of the $2 they have been getting.
The city council has talked about raising the pay for firefighters since last summer. The council anticipated the raise while planning the city's 2012 budget. The raise will be effective as of Jan. 1, 2012.
"It's a step in the right direction," said fire chief Scott Aker.
