City of Lodi police and fire department employees will likely receive checks for overtime hours they have worked during the last couple of years, which they have banked instead of cashing out.

Starting in July 2009, police and fire unions agreed to bank any overtime up to 480 hours. This helped the city save money in the short-term, city staff said.

    Three to three and a half mil for a new firehouse seems excessive to me.
    Mr. Ayers says "We want $800,000 in the pot"---I say fix the firehouse we bought for you and take care of it.
    The $6000 overtime pay seems excessive to me but who knows if it is a valid expense without audit or oversight.
    The council members responsible for spending 643k toward redevelopment agency---against the will of constituents should be ashamed that this money was wasted--- "written off".
    Some windfall!
    Council guys----please----have some respect for the money
