I am Howard Levy with Deerfield-News.com
I was sent your name from Assistant City Clerk Heather Montemayor.
I have spoken with employees of your department.They have concerns that they are not being paid for the Fema work they say they are still doing.Apparently they had been receiving additional pay above regular O/T for doing debris removal,if I understand and now they are not.Can you please clarify why they were paid a higher rate and now they are not.
