It may never pay to be EMS interim director for Preston Denney.Members of the county Budget and Finance Committee approved the Emergency Medical Services’ proposed budget for fiscal year 2016-17 without a suggested salary increase for Denney.“We’ll come back and look at that,” said committee chair Terry Bell of the raise.Safety Committee members approved a $7,000 raise to bring the director’s salary up to $60,748. Since Denney took the reins of the department in January, his pay went from approximately $60,000 a year to $53,748. The increase in salary for director would bring him back up to what he was making before his promotion.
