Monday evening during the Common Council meeting, Plymouth City Attorney Sean Surrisi presented the ordinance to change the pay structure for volunteer firefighters and volunteer EMTs, and Paramedics. The new ordinance increases the call-out pay from $15 to $20 and if a firefighter is working a fire situation for 4 hours or more their pay will be $40. Firefighters will be issued a credit for each hour and that will be used to determine their pay.
The Common Council unanimously approved the ordinance amendment on the second and third readings.
