The Savanna Police Department completed a new three-year Agreement. The team secured a wage increase in each of the three years, significantly increased Lieutenant pay, limited part-time officer use, streamlined the grievance procedure, increased personal and compensatory time, increased uniform allowance and the percentage between the last three longevity steps were increased. Beneficial language changes were made throughout the contract which have a positive impact on all the members. The bargaining team of Dan Neville and Mitch Ottenhausen did an excellent job representing the membership. The team was assisted by Field Representative Jay Titus.
