The City Council on Monday approved a four-year contract extension that affects 13 full-time city firefighters, starting Jan. 1, 2018. Local 106 of the International Association of Firefighters was the bargaining agent. Firefighter base pay in 2017 for someone who has put in at least four years is $73,725 annually, and that will go up 4 percent for each of the four years of the contract through 2021, according to the full packet of information provided to council. An entry-level firefighter is paid about 19 percent less.
