Policy change allows transfer of sick leave


January 3, 2019

A policy change occurred at the commissioners meeting Monday, Dec. 31, due in part to the new County Treasurer, Christina Nelson.

Earlier in December Nelson, who has been the IT director for the county, requested the commissioners to donate some of her remaining sick leave hours to the sick leave bank for general use.

“I didn’t want to see those hours [accrued] moved off the books,” said Nelson, especially when others might have a need for those hours.

Elected positions do not accrue vacation hours or sick leave hours because they are salaried positions with an annual pay rate.
