Daleville council OKs 'diminished activity' day

The day following Thanksgiving Day will be a day of “diminished activity” for the Daleville City offices.

At the Daleville City Council meeting Nov. 17, the council unanimously approved a resolution declaring Friday, Nov. 27, as a day of diminished activity for city departments.

If complete shut down of a department can be scheduled Nov. 27, that is acceptable, according to the resolution.

If complete shut down of a department is not possible, employees who work that day may take another day off on or before April 30, 2021, according to the resolution.

In other business, Councilwoman Katheryne Horace reported an opening on the Daleville Water and Sewer Board created by the resignation Nov. 12 of board member Patrick Sullen, who has accepted employment in the Daleville Water and Sewer Department.

The council also approved the request of the Daleville Chamber of Commerce to use the Daleville Cultural and Convention Center at no charge for the Health and Wellness Expo Jan. 8, 2021. The event had originally been set for Oct. 9 but was postponed due to the COVID-19 mandated mask ordinance extension.

The next meeting of the Daleville City Council is a work session set for 5 p.m. Monday, Nov, 30. The next voting meeting of the council is at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 1. Both meetings are in the Daleville City Hall Council Chamber and both meetings are open to the public.
