  • Cease Fire on Overtime Talk...For Now

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Avoiding a regular discussion each meeting on waiving the freeze on overtime, Bullitt Fiscal Court agreed to wait on imposing that on the EMS service.
        But that waiver only goes through the end of June, when a new budget cycle begins July 1.
        EMS director Mike Phillips said that under the present scheduling setup, there is no way to avoid overtime. Currently, the agency works on a 48-hour shift one week, followed by a 36-hour shift the next. This results in four hours of scheduled overtime each pay period.
