More than 300 police officers and firefighters could see a jump in pay in the fiscal year that starts July 1. The city is pumping more money into public service to reward employees for longevity and improving skills. The proposed pay upgrades would affect about 25 percent to 30 percent of public safety workers in Chattanooga, city officials said.
"This is a big deal for the men and women in the department," said Police Department Assistant Chief Tommy Kennedy.
