One of the alleged hallmarks of the Nancolas administration in Caldwell is supposed to be "TRANSPARENCY" we noted the following on the consent calendar for last nights city council meeting:
“4. Approve Resolution authorizing the granting up to 58 hours of paid time off for full time regular municipal employees, part time regular municipal employees, full time police department employees, and appointed officials and set an effective date of July 6, 2011.”
I fired off an email to city finance director Eljay Waite asking what this is all about. Mr. Waite told me to file a public records request with the city clerk Debbie Geyer and then if I had any questions to then refer them to city human resources director Monica Jones.
I also copied two city council people on this and have received nothing from them regarding my question about what the deal is with 58 hours of time away from the job at taxpayer expense.
It seemed like a pretty simple and straight forward question that would have some kind of reasonable answer. I filed my public records request this morning and am waiting to get a copy of the resolution via email. Stay tuned for more when I get my stuff from the city clerk.
