Fire district workers get long-overdue payday

Suzanne Adams-Ockrassa
Miner Staff Reporter

Lake Mohave Ranchos Fire District employees got their paychecks Thursday for the first time in four weeks.

According to a Mohave County news release, the total bill came to $102,708 for 34 full- and part-time employees. The money will come from the county and will be repaid by the district at a later date.

The district's administrator, John Flynn, said that the salaries for each employee depended on their position within the department and the number of hours they worked.

The number of paid staff working at the district's two fire stations has been reduced and two other local fire districts have agreed to respond to emergencies in the district if necessary.

The district fell into financial difficulties earlier this year when its expenses outstripped the amount of property tax revenue it was collecting. The county appointed Flynn to take over the district after the entire district governing board resigned.

Flynn said it will take at least two weeks for him to sort through the district's financials and come up with a plan eliminate the district's debt problems.
