Town makes some employee benefits program changes

April 12, 2006|by ANDREW SCHOTZ

WILLIAMSPORT - The town changed its employee benefits program in two ways on Monday.

Acting on a recommendation by James R. Castle, the acting clerk/treasurer, the Williamsport Town Council voted unanimously to change the date when employees are compensated for banked vacation and sick time.

The town will compensate employees on the anniversary of the dates they were hired instead of at the end of the fiscal year.

In addition, employees for the first time will be able to carry over up to 80 hours of vacation and sick time.

Through a second unanimous vote, the town council also agreed to combine vacation and sick time into the single category of "paid time off."

"The way I read this, our employees lose nothing," Assistant Mayor Monty R. Jones said.

"Actually they're gaining - up to 80 hours to carry over," Mayor James G. McCleaf II said.
