Managing Overtime to Control Costs and Improve Services

Managing overtime expenditures is not only an internal cost management issue, but can be a highly visible political issue as well.  To deal with these internal and external pressures, many local governments have begun to aggressively attack overtime expenditures.  Unfortunately, effectively managing overtime expenditures is not a simple task.  Depending on how overtime is currently being used, efforts to reduce overtime may result in savings or, alternately, may compromise services and, in some cases, increase costs.
