Overtime expense closes Lackawanna fire station

Sep 7, 2012

Lackawanna's Abbott Road fire station was shut down Thursday as the city attempts to douse a stunning rise in fire department  overtime costs.

The city fire department spent over $60,000 in overtime pay last month, following a trend that was brought to light by an audit from the State Comptroller's office.

From August 2011 through July 2012, fire department overtime expenditures totaled $511,000, $211,000 above the budgeted amount.

Some new department hires are expected to help alleviate staffing problems, which have been partly to blame for excessive overtime.
