During the first five years on the job, an employee earns 10 days of vacation per year. After five years of continuous service, the accrual rate increases to 15 days per year. City workers accumulate sick leave at the rate of one day per month (12 days annually), if needed. Uniformed members of the Police and Fire departments earn 15 days of vacation annually, as well as 15 days of annual sick leave, regardless of length of service.
Vacation and sick leave may be accessed after three full months on the job. The city observes nine paid holidays per year. Good attendance is rewarded around Christmastime with the city’s unused sick leave buy-back program.
