Reading Victor Gavron’s letter in the Monitor reminded me that I wanted to thank Councillor Vincent Chiravalle for his vote to support the fact-finder’s recommendation on the firefighter contract.
It is not at all clear to me why council voted “no” on the recommendation and substituted an embarrassingly low wage hike in its place.
As Mr. Gavron reminds us, living here is expensive.
But we are arguably among the most affluent counties in the country.
If we can afford the lovely Canyon Rim Trail that I hiked, we can afford a fair wage for our emergency workers.
Given that our firefighters once saved my wife’s life, it’s hard for me to put an exact dollar price on their worth, but they are sure worth more than the raise council approved.
