FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Members of the Fort Wayne Police and Fire Departments will get a bonus in their paychecks later this month.
Mayor Tom Henry today announced that those who worked while City of Fort Wayne offices were closed during last week’s Polar Vortex will receive time and a half compensation for their efforts.
The public safety divisions were able to find the necessary resources in their approved 2019 budgets to fund the additional pay.
The extra compensation will be part of the paycheck issued on Friday, Feb. 22.
