Fountain Valley police officers will receive a series of pay raises totaling 11.5% over the next three years under a package approved by the City Council on Tuesday.
Officers and sergeants will get raises of 4% this year, 4% next year and 3.5% the year after.
The previous base salary range was about $74,680 to $90,780 annually for an officer and $96,396 to $117,175 for a sergeant.
The council passed the pay packages on a 4-1 vote. Councilman Mark McCurdy voted no, calling the raises “a little too steep.”
“I do have some concerns about fiscal responsibility,” he said.
