08/15/16 ~ City of Blue Mound Regular Council Meeting

The City Council of the City of Blue Mound will hold a Regular City Council Meeting on Monday, August 15, 2016 in the City Hall Council Chambers at 301 Blue Mound Road at 7:00 P.M. for the following agenda:

1.  Call to Order / Invocation / Announcements

2.      Citizens Participation (Limit to 3 Minutes – Complete Speakers request form and Submit to City Secretary prior to the start of meeting)

3.     Discuss and Consider Changes to the Employee Handbook as Follows:

We need to make a correction on page 27 of the handbook regarding overtime pay, as that paragraph conflicts with information throughout the handbook.  I would recommend the fourth (4th) paragraph read as follows:

"Time off for paid vacation leave, paid holiday leave, sick leave, jury duty leave, bereavement leave, or any other paid leave of absence is not considered as time worked when calculating overtime hours.  Witness duty, if attended as part of your professional duties, will be considered time worked when calculating overtime hours, and as such can be eligible for overtime pay."

Since the city council has opted to pay overtime and no longer offer the option of "Comp Time", that also needs to be addressed on the following pages:

Page 33, paragraph 2
Page 35, paragraph 5
Page 39, paragraph 6
Page 43, paragraph 9
Page 45, under the section for “practices not permitted”
Page 47, paragraph 1
Page 50, paragraph 8
Page 51, paragraph 1
Page 55, paragraph 6
Page 56, paragraph 5
Page 59, paragraph 6

4.      Discuss and Consider Resolution 16-06 Approving Grant Submission for the Texas Conversion to the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS)

5.      Discuss and Consider Christmas Event
