NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (AP) — Another local government in Hamilton County plans to give virus-related bonuses to city employees.
Firefighters and police officers in Noblesville will receive $2,000 each while other workers will get $1,000.
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.
Mayor Chris Jensen says police and firefighters are getting larger bonuses because they were more at risk of getting COVID-19.
He predicts people will spent a lot of the money locally.
