Overtime costs falling


Milton’s Fire Department, which overspent its overtime budget in the last fiscal year, is on track to spend 40 percent less than last year on overtime, according to Chief John J. Grant. Grant told selectmen at a meeting Tuesday that the overtime costs have declined because there have been fewer injuries among firefighters, no one is out on military leave, and the summer has been light in terms of calls. Grant also introduced a new hire, Adam Donovan, to selectmen Tuesday, but said he still needed one more person for a full complement on the Fire Department.
