Thankfully election season is over. Congrats to the winners...thank you also H.D.A. McMichael for staying out of politics for another term. You screwed up enough crap during your time. If Putnam County citizens were really interested in saving money in the taxes that are paid how about looking at the way your firefighters are paid. Look up the Fair Labor and Standards Act (FLSA) regarding firefighter pay....actually just look up firefighter and police officer pay. Most workers get overtime after 40 hrs. FF and law enforcement are exempt from this. http://www.dol.gov/whd/regs/compliance/whdfs8... (Section 7(k))

Section 7(k) of the FLSA provides that employees engaged in fire protection or law enforcement may be paid overtime on a “work period” basis. A “work period” may be from 7 consecutive days to 28 consecutive days in length. For work periods of at least 7 but less than 28 days, overtime pay is required when the number of hours worked exceeds the number of hours that bears the same relationship to 212 (fire) or 171 (police) as the number of days in the work period bears to 28. For example, fire protection personnel are due overtime under such a plan after 106 hours worked during a 14-day work period, while law enforcement personnel must receive overtime after 86 hours worked during a 14-day work period.
