HUGE Charity Rummage Sale at middle school

All proceeds from the sale go to the foundation to fund grants that will be awarded to district teachers in October.

Two amendments affect village staff
Resolution Nos. 14-04 and 14-05, both on the agenda at the Aug. 18 board meeting, affect village staff members. One is related to employee sick leave, and the other covers employee pay related to attendance at committee meetings.

Village Administrator David Strohl wrote in a memorandum that the first resolution amends village Uniform Personnel Rules and Regulations by:

  • Permitting employees not covered by a collective bargaining agreement to use sick leave in increments of not less than 15 minutes instead of the current policy of using sick leave in increments of not less than four hours; and
  • Codifying past and current practice of permitting employees to use sick time to attend medical appointments for themselves or for members of their immediate family.

The amendment allows employees to take as little time off as necessary when using sick leave. Currently, an employee who needs only an hour for a medical appointment must take four hours.

Resolution No. 14-05 updates a motion dating back to 1998 that paid employees $25 for each committee meeting attended outside normal working hours. The village no longer has a committee system.

Strohl recommended passage of both resolutions. Trustees agreed unanimously.
