Noblesville giving bonuses to city workersJune 29, 2021
By The Associated Press
NOBLESVILLE — Another local government in Hamilton County plans to give virus-related bonuses to public employees.
Firefighters and police officers in Noblesville will receive $2,000 each while other city workers will get $1,000.
“We didn’t give raises this year, and this is our way of saying thank you for working through the health crisis. ... People will spend a lot of this money locally,” Mayor Chris Jensen said.
The money will come from Noblesville's share of federal aid for the COVID-19 pandemic. Hamilton County gave $3,000 to each of its workers.
Jensen said police and firefighters are getting larger bonuses because they were at risk of getting COVID-19, the Indianapolis Star reported.
“They were out answering calls and in close contact with people,” he said.
