Police and firefighters are one step closer now to getting a pay raise-- that's what Colorado Springs City Council decided Tuesday.
We found out the cost for taxpayers to give all the firefighters and police officers a raise would be $3.7 million.
The City Council has to vote again on this issue before it takes effect.
Over the last year, the city did a study to find where the pay of our cops and firefighters compared to others across the state. We're told that when compared to other cities, they made less money.
City Council will vote again on this later this month. If it passes again, it'll go into effect in June.
