Some changes were made to the holiday schedule for town employees at Monday night’s Winamac Town Council meeting.
Clerk-Treasurer Melanie Berger explained that typically, town employees work half days on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. However, since Christmas falls on a Tuesday this year, Berger asked the council to consider giving employees the whole day off on Monday, December 24th in exchange for working a full day on Monday, December 31st. With her suggestion, employees would still get full days off on Christmas and New Year’s Day.
Councilwoman Judy Heater asked if employees would be in favor of the change. Clerk-Treasurer Berger stated that the people she consulted seemed to be on board with the idea and the consensus from department superintendents was that they were okay with the adjustment.
Council members voted unanimously to adjust the holiday schedule to reflect Berger’s suggestion.
