GARY -- Members of Gary's firefighters union said Mayor Rudy Clay offered them a one-time deal Friday after too many workers were sent home.
Raynard Robinson, president of Firefighters Local 359, said the mayor offered not to cut the next paychecks of certain firefighters if they returned to work after being given a furlough day."
