City Council approves more paid personal leave time for city employees

At Monday’s Chaska City Council meeting, the Council approved changes to the paid personal leave (PPL) policy for all city union and non-union employees.  The changes were approved on a 3-1 vote, with Councilor Gino Businaro voting no, and Mayor Mark Windschitl absent due to illness.

These changes provide employees with additional paid personal leave, designed (per City Administrator Matt Podhradsky) to bring Chaska in line with the average of a peer group of 30 cities.

The changes would give an employee an average of about three more days of paid personal leave per year over the first 20 years of employment.

Below is a table showing the breakdown of the new plan versus the current plan.  City employees are also expected (assuming the preliminary levy is approved at the December 20 City Council meeting) to get pay raises of 1.5% in 2011.
