Hours, pay pe­riod change for Aragon em­ploy­ees

The Standard Journal - - LOCAL -

Coun­cil mem­bers ap­proved two changes that will af­fect city em­ploy­ees in the com­ing weeks. Changes to the city’s work­ing hours and the pay pe­riod came unan­i­mously dur­ing the Fe­bru­ary ses­sion.

New em­ployee hours were set from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. with a 30 minute lunch time, shift­ing from a 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with an hour lunch.

Em­ploy­ees will now also be paid weekly in­stead of twice a month with the coun­cil’s ap­proval. Nor­man said the change came by the re­quest of sev­eral em­ploy­ees.

Coun­cil­man Kevin Prewett asked that a time clock sys­tem be put in place and em­ploy­ees be re­quired to turn in time cards on a weekly ba­sis.
