FORUM PRINT-EDITION EXCLUSIVE SERIES: Overtime under review: Area public workers pile up hours, payWe got curious:
How much were our local governments spending on overtime wages for public employees, especially given the work involved in fighting back our recent floods?
We set out to find the answers. Four Forum reporters spent part of the past few months examining two years and four months of recent payroll information of five local governments.
What we learned is detailed in our five-day series July 25-29 only in the printed paper.
A detailed look at overtime for each government we examined is featured on the following days:
July 25: Overview of our study, and Clay County
July 26: Cass County
July 27: Fargo
July 28: Moorhead
July 29: West Fargo
