Several city workers and others attended the special meeting but no progress was made on the personnel policy.
The Louisa City Council met for a Special Meeting Tuesday night. Despite there being a short agenda the meeting was lengthy.
The meeting was called to order by Mayor Teddy Preston.
The first item on the agenda was the swimming pool. Council had suggested that there be a Pool Party for all City employees on Labor Day. The City Clerk, Kathy Compton, Lisa Slone and Sandy Stark were appointed to get everything together. They also agreed that everyone could pitch in by bringing a covered dish. It was also City Attorney Eldred Adams leaned back to answer an audience question at the meeting.agreed that it would be set from 2pm until everyone leaves.
It was discussed whether or not for the pool to have its own budget or its own account.
Compton, who is not a member of the committee, suggested that they could set them up as a completely separate department so that it would be easier to keep track of.
The floor was turned over to City Attorney Bud Adams to review the Personnel Policy.
Discussion was made on each part of the current policy to bring it up to date. The current policy was voted in back in 1991 and there is a need for changes to be made to make it up to date.
The Council made recommendations on what to be revised and there will be another meeting to review it in the future.
Some of the items the council discussed were the Mayor being able to fire anyone but the police, vacation days, who can apply for employment with the City and bereavement days.
Adams explained that since all City employees with the exception of the police could be fired by the Mayor at any time with no reason, but clarified that the employee who is fired has the right to request a reason for dismissal and the Mayor would have to justify why.
Also, it was discussed that an employee would receive 6 vacation days each of the first two years of employment and from the third to the 12th year would receive 12 vacation days. One day after the 12th year would be added up to a max of 20 days. It was also agreed that anyone who receives more than the 20 would be grandfathered in. It was also discussed bereavement days would be up to three days.
No action was taken, however.
