Pay raises are on the way for Flint's police and fire departments. After weeks of delays, the Flint City Council finally approved contracts that raise their hourly pay. Frustration was mounting as council members continued to move the item on its agenda over the past few weeks. With the green light given earlier this week, the city says entry level positions will get a 50% pay increase. "The fires, arsons are up quite substantially here in the city of Flint and they're having to fight fire 24 hours a day," said Flint Fire Chief Theron Wiggins. With a department that is busy almost around the clock, he was waiting for weeks to raise the pay for the men and women at the Flint Fire Department.
