Personal Leave

Personal leave allows employees flexibility in taking time off for vacations, family needs, illness, and any other reason you need to be away from work.  Personal leave combines vacation and sick leave into one leave bank – employees will earn personal leave every two weeks, and, with advance notice or in case of emergency, leave earned may be taken in increments as small as a half-hour.  In addition, personal leave has the following features:

  • Employees may carry over up to ten (10) days each year until they reach a maximum leave balance of 100 days.
  • Employees are paid for their personal leave when they leave employment "at the rate they are paid when they leave".

The City offers eleven (11) paid holidays and those holidays are:

  • New Year's Day
  • Martin Luther King Jr's Birthday
  • Good Friday
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Veteran's Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Friday after Thanksgiving
  • Christmas Eve
  • Christmas Day
