Proposed Pay Raises for Police and Fire
In his final proposed budget, Mayor Jim Strickland has asked the City Council to approve a 14% salary increase for Police (Memphis Police Association) and Fire (International Association of Fire Fighters) employees and a 13% increase for Communication Dispatchers. The bonus retention program is funding 9% of this increase.
The City will require all participants in the retention bonus program to sign a release that ends the agreement between the City and the employee. Once the termination is signed and the salary increase is implemented, you will not be obligated to repay any bonus money should you decide to leave employment with the City.
