“We want to make sure all our Solid Waste Services employees have the opportunity to exercise their right to vote,” said Michael Shaw, Solid Waste Services division manager.
City employees may request time off to vote if their work schedules conflict with hours the polls are open. Additionally, the City Council has approved eight hours of pay for City employees who get training and work at the polls on Election Day.
