- Consideration of Christmas Gift Cards for Employees in the amount of $14,100.00 (Recommended by Personnel and Intergovernmental Relations Committee and Finance Committee) – Katherine Cook, Human Resource Assistant
The committee recommendation is for a $50 gift card for employees, with the exception that essential personnel for the Sheriff’s Department (as determined by the Sheriff) be granted double that amount. Over the past calendar year, many law enforcement personnel were required to work on several occasions when other employees were excused from work without being charged leave time. These occasions included the solar eclipse and two days of early dismissal due to anticipated bad weather. Funding would come from non-departmental and council contingency accounts within the existing budget.
