Big Spring Responds to Federal Overtime Lawsuit

BIG SPRING - The City of Big Spring has responded to a federal lawsuit that demands back pay for firefighters.

The Big Spring Professional Firefighters Association claims the city has been calculating overtime pay incorrectly for years. They are suing for four years worth of unpaid overtime.

A response by the city filed Monday says the fire fighters are not entitled to the amount requested, but does admit to owing some overtime to some workers.

A spokesperson for the fire fighter association tells NewsWest9 they are currently reviewing the city's response.
