Preliminary reports show that overtime costs through the second quarter (July 1 - December 31) of fiscal year 2019 totaled approximately $89.5 million, compared to almost $93.0 million over the same period last year—representing a 3.5 percent reduction in overtime spending. Departments with the highest overtime spending totals in FY2018, such as the Police, Prisons, and Streets Departments, managed to decrease overtime costs thus far in FY2019. However, higher spending within the Fire, Sheriff, and Parks and Recreation Departments and the Office of Fleet Management continues to offset these reductions.
