Moberly First Responders See Significant Pay Increase Following Budget Passage

Police and other first responders in Moberly are seeing a significant pay increase in the city’s new budget that took effect at the beginning of the month. All city employees are receiving a three percent increase. City Manager Brian Crane describes the plan they developed to provide a larger increase for first responders.

The increase brings first responders to about 20 dollars an hour. Crane says first responder pay has come a long way in Moberly.

Increased revenues in Moberly have allowed for these steady pay increases.
