Fire chief who asked for sick days off three months in advance made $200,000 that year

Fire battalion chief Gina Hall, who in emails posted elsewhere on this blog is seen asking for sick days off three months in advance, made $200,000 in that year, 2009, according to payroll records I have obtained. The records show how firefighters, under their contract with the county, were able to augment their base pay with a variety of methods, including sick, overtime and longevity pay.

And the recipient of Hall's email, fellow chief Renee Dillingham, made $250,000 in 2009.

We will have more on this on "Face to Face" on Thursday, and we will have the county's expert on sick leave abuse, Ed Finger, on the program on Friday.
