Wadena firefighters have something extra to look forward to since the city council approved an increase in their pensions at the Feb. 12 meeting.


The increase to $2,175 for every year served on the department is an approximate 10 percent jump from the previous payout factor of $1,970 per year served. Wadena Fire Chief Dean Uselman said the increase would go far in encouraging firefighters to stay on in Wadena.
