City Manager Announces No Overtime for Workers
October 23, 2010
The City Manager Ed Smyth announced today that effectively immediately hourly staff is not permitted to work over 40 hours per week except to perform emergency utility repairs.  Smyth directed all Department Managers that when an employee reaches 40 hours in any week they are to be sent home for the balance of the pay week.  As a result of this directive, City utility customers requesting turn on service may be required to wait until the next business day for reconnection.

Smyth remarked that the utility staff currently works from 7:30 - 3:30 Monday thru Friday, and that some customers may be inconvenienced over a weekend if they make their late payment after those hours on Friday.  "This is a cost containment measure to keep the City from declaring a financial emergency later in the year", Smyth said.

The City Commission will hold a workshop with the City Manager, Senior Managers and a representative from the Florida League of Cities- Financial Services department on Tuesday, October 26, 2010 at 10:00 a.m. to explore other significant reductions in General Fund Expenditures.
