Raise for fire chief still leaves him making less than his deputy

Published Friday March 3

But both chief and deputy chief are paid more than nearby city managers and other fire chiefs

Menlo Park Fire Protection District Chief Harold Schapelhouman was given a $15,000 raise — to $265,000 a year — by the district’s governing board on Feb. 21, a move the chief remarked was needed so the district’s deputy chief did not make more than the chief.

It turns out, additionally that, counting a $12,000 a year stipend he receives for living within ten miles of the fire district’s boundaries, Deputy Chief Don Long still makes about $7,000 a year more than the chief at $272,118 a year.

The fire district has the full-time equivalent of 125.5 employees.
