Overtime still impacting Gwinnett County pensions | www.myajc.com

During each of his last four years with the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office, Ronald Sims added nearly 50 percent to his $60,000 salary in overtime — making $109,000 by working extra hours from 2008 until his 2011 retirement.

And Sims isn’t alone.

Last year, Cpl. George Miller made $32,500 in overtime and Sgt. Paul Corso made $28,000, culminating five-year runs in which each accumulated more than $118,000 in overtime pay on top of their regular salaries.

It’s a level of spending that helped make overtime in the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office a federal issue, when former Commission chairman Charles Bannister filed a lawsuit against Sheriff Butch Conway alleging, in part, that the Sheriff allowed employees to pad their pensions through overtime.
