Our Opinion: Tupelo's overtime focus a success story
Often political candidates say government should be run like a business. It sounds good, but the reality isn't always that simple, given the services government is expected to provide and its relative lack of flexibility when compared with businesses.Full Story

The Average American pay is $ 51,000 a year. Pay the working employees what they deserve and fire those that do a poor job.
Stop using city employees for private business such as moving historic houses or working on the airport. I see city workers taking breaks or doing some stunt to get publicity for the mayor.

The fire dept had overtime built into its schedule and the police earned 20,000.00 driving inmates to the hospital= Expand surrounding fire deptmartments into Lee county and hire this business savy officer as chief. Only in Tupelo can they pat each other on the back for being screw ups then pretending to fix the problem they created. Way to run the asylum inmates! Great job!

You get what you pay for. If you want a police force made of dummies hire them for $20k it eliminates anyone who values their time.

you misunderstood the arcticle they make 20k just in overtime. That's about 55k for low level "dummies" as you put it.

Working more hours is not bright either.
Life is not about working it away.
