BONIFAY Â– Several workshops have been held recently concerning the employee handbook, however, the matter was tabled by the Bonifay City Council when they met in a regular session meeting on Monday, August 9.
Councilman Robert Urquhart expressed frustration over employees being paid out for sick time and his disagreement with that part
of the handbook. Â“We should not be paying out for sick time,Â” said
Urquhart. Â“We pay employees to work, not be sick. There are some here
that have $70,000 in sick time built up, how can we afford to pay that but are two months behind on bills?Â”
The council agreed the matter should be tabled and discussed further in a workshop.
