City Spends Entire Overtime Allocation Through Third Quarter
Departments Spent $19 Million More in FY2018 Than at Same Time Last Year
April 25, 2018— Preliminary reports show that City of Philadelphia overtime costs through the third quarter of fiscal year 2018 totaled $135.4 million, or 99.8 percent of the City’s $135.6 million annual overtime allocation, with three months remaining in the fiscal year. Additionally, overtime costs increased by $18.9 million over the first three quarters of fiscal year 2017, after the City had achieved a reduction in overtime spending in that fiscal year. High third quarter overtime spending puts the City on pace to exceed FY2016 and FY2017 overtime spending totals, and, as in previous years, excessive overtime spending may again threaten the City’s budget for total wages.
