Florissant Police Pay Raise Follows Passage of Prop P in St. Louis County

The Florissant City Council at its meeting on Tuesday, May 9, unanimously passed an ordinance raising pay for members of the Florissant Police Department. Uniformed personnel will transition into the new pay plan with the City’s 2018 fiscal year effective December 1.

Each uniformed employee will be eligible to move to the next step within her/his respective pay grade upon reaching the anniversary of her/his date of hiring based upon completion of a positive evaluation.

At Florissant Mayor Thomas Schneider’s direction, Florissant Police Chief Timothy Lowery and his command staff did extensive research and made a recommendation to the city council, which was used to draft the police pay bill passed by the Council.

“Funds raised with the passage of Proposition P on the April 4 election ballot in St. Louis County will enable us to maintain the excellent standards of our Florissant Police Department,” said Jackie Pagano, President of the Florissant City Council.

“The voters of St. Louis County sent a message that public safety is a vital concern for residents throughout St. Louis County, including its largest municipality, Florissant.”

Mayor Schneider was the first municipal leader to speak out in favor of Prop P for the safety of all residents of St. Louis County.

The Mayor and the nine-member Florissant City Council unanimously endorsed a ‘yes’ vote on Proposition P on the April 4 election ballot.

Prop P was passed by a 63 percent majority of voters in the April 4 election to fund public safety. “We strongly endorsed passage of Proposition P to help our Florissant Police Department improve its already excellent standards,” said Mayor Schneider, “and to encourage all law enforcement agencies in the County to do the same to protect everyone in St. Louis County.”

The Florissant City Council will review the grade and step wage schedule prior to future fiscal years and make adjustments necessary to keep the police wage plan competitive.
