Memo-10-13-2015- Item 8e

MEMO TO:           Mayor Barber and Board of Commissioners

FROM:                  Frank A. Rush, Jr., Town Manager

SUBJECT:           Resolution Amending Personnel Policy

The Board of Commissioners is asked to approve the attached resolution amending the Town’s Personnel Policy at the October 13 meeting.  The attached resolution includes three separate amendments.

The attached memo from Rhonda Ferebee, Town Clerk / Human Resources Officer, to me dated October 2 includes a thorough explanation of the proposed amendments.  The three amendments are as follows:

  1. changes the basis for calculating hourly rates for part-time Police Officers to insure fairness with pay rates for full-time Police Officers,
  2. clarifies that accrued vacation leave may not be used after the last day the employee physically works for the Town, and caps the total payment at 30 days, and
  3. implements a recent State law intended to protect certain personal information of law enforcement officers.

I recommend approval of the attached resolution.
