Merced adds money to firefighter overtime budget, eases off brownouts

With an OK from city leaders, Merced Fire Department officials expect to all but eliminate brownouts, a policy in place since 2012 that sometimes left the department short-staffed to save overtime dollars.

The city has added $110,000 to the overtime budget to avoid using brownouts, which occasionally left one engine at the station unstaffed for a shift.
