Downers Grove Council approves police and staff raises despite objections
DOWNERS GROVE — Village officials approved raises for Downers Grove police and top staff on Tuesday despite objections that the compensation was either too large, too small or that the entire evaluation process was faulty.
The village council approved a 2-percent raise for Village Manager David Fieldman, a $3,000 increase that brings his total compensation to $163,000, plus a $10,000 bonus. Village Attorney Enza Petrarca received a 3-percent bump that would bring her compensation to roughly $128,000, according to village compensation records.
Commissioners, meanwhile, approved a new contract with the police officer's union, the Fraternal Order of Police, that awarded a 2-percent increase for last year and this year, plus a 1 percent raise in 2014 for Downers Grove police officers.
