New engine for Tinley Park (more)

Excerpts from patch.com:

Tinley Park board members voted to chip in 80 percent of the cost for a new fire engine for Tinley Park Fire Department at last week’s village board meeting.

The new engine costs $830,000 total of which the village will pay $637,989 and $159,497 will be paid for by the Tinley Park Fire Department Association. Officials did not immediately respond to questions on who will pay the remaining $32,514.

According to trustees, the engine runs a high price due to the newness of the machine and the special design. The fire association formed a committee of firefighters to determine which features they would need most on a new engine before purchasing.

The average cost of a new fire engine ranges from $600,000 to $1 million, officials said.

The engine is being bought through the Houston Galveston Area Council Purchasing Cooperation, an inter-governmental sales program. The resolution approving the purchase noted the purchasing cooperation’s prices were subject to a competitive bidding process.

Tinley Park Fire Department news

Excerpts from theChicagoTribune.com:

In a bid to stay competitive in hiring and retaining firefighters, Tinley Park officials plan to overhaul how most fire department personnel are paid. For the largely part-time force, a 10-step pay structure would be implemented with the start of the next village fiscal year on May 1. The pay plan would offer 2 percent pay hikes for each step.

Currently, according to the village, firefighters have limited opportunities for pay hikes, which the new plan is intended to correct. Right now, personnel see pay increases once they complete their one-year probationary period or upon promotion, or through village board action in approving annual market wage adjustments.

The base rate for assistant chief, now at $25.96 per hour, would be boosted to $28.16, while the base hourly rate for deputy chief, now at $38.37, would go up to $42.47. Both are part-time positions. After that, assistant and deputy chief positions wouldn’t be on the step increase schedule, but would be eligible for annual merit-based increases that would need village board approval.

Over four years, the revised pay structure is expected to cost the village a bit more than $513,000.

Tinley Park Fire Department news

This from Mike Summa:

The following was taken from the September 18th edition of the “Village View” newspaper.  In order to meet the 21st Century needs of the Tinley Park Fire Department, the village will demolish Fire Station No. 47, at 7825 W. 167th St. and construct a new station in its place.  Key features of the new station will include bunk room facilities to accommodate constant occupancy of six to eight firefighters.  Demolition of the old building is slated to begin in winter 2018, with construction to follow spring 2019.  If all goes as planned, the new station should open in the fall of 2019.
