Officers also earn “special duty” overtime by working on outside projects such as private party details or roadwork for utility companies. The town is reimbursed for special duty overtime by the outside hiring authority.

Other things added to a police officer’s base salary include step increases — an increase based on years of experience, longevity bonuses for working for the town for a certain amount of time, and shift differential pay for work performed on a different shift than scheduled.

Two of the employees on the list, police Officer Dann McInnis and Public Works foreman David Gay, both retired in 2014, and their salaries include severance packages that include vacation and sick time payouts.
