IVINS, Washington County — Christmas came early for police officers in Ivins and Santa Clara, as the Ivins City Council has approved a raise in pay.

Ivins, which oversees financing and operations for the joint Santa Clara-Ivins Police Department in the same way Santa Clara oversees the fire department, approved a pay raise of $6 per hour. The decision was made over the course of two Ivins City Council meetings, which culminated in a 3-0 approval with two council members absent on Nov. 17.

The item was one of the last on the council's agenda in a Nov. 17 meeting. Santa Clara-Ivins Police Chief Bob Flowers sat among members of the audience for the length of the meeting, but by the time the item came up two and a half hours later, Flowers was one of the last people in the audience.

"That's OK. I can wait all night long," Flowers said.
