[CC 1996 §130.360; Ord. No. 1030 §1, 12-8-1997]
Any salary rate established for an employee shall be the total remuneration for the employee, not including reimbursement for official travel or other authorized allowances, such as uniform allowances, compensation for authorized overtime or holiday pay as authorized by the City for those to which it applies.
In any case in which compensation for services of any City employee is paid by any outside governmental agency or from private sources for services performed as a representative of the City, such payments shall be remitted directly to the City within twenty-four (24) hours of receipt.
[CC 1996 §130.370; Ord. No. 1030 §1, 12-8-1997]
No employee holding a position in the City shall be eligible for employment in any additional full-time position in the City. A full-time employee may be hired as a part-time, temporary or seasonal employee by the City. However, the City should take into account with such an appointment the impact of the Fair Labor Standards Act which requires all work beyond forty (40) hours in a week to be paid at the employee's full-time, overtime rate.

[CC 1996 §130.410; Ord. No. 1030 §1, 12-8-1997]
If an employee is temporarily assigned to a higher position class with a corresponding higher salary rate, that employee will continue to receive the salary corresponding to his/her regular position. However, the City Administrator may approve a higher temporary salary based solely on his/her discretion.
[CC 1996 §130.420; Ord. No. 1030 §1, 12-8-1997; Ord. No. 1202 §I, 2-26-2001]
The standard workweek for employees of the City other than elected officials, members of the personal staff of an elected official, appointees of an elected official serving on a policy-making level, professional employees, executive employees, administrative employees and seasonal employees as defined by the Fair Labor Standards Act, 29 U.S.D.C. Section 213 and except for public safety employees shall be a seven (7) day period beginning at 12:01 A.M. on Saturdays and ending at 12:00 A.M. on the following Saturday. Such employees shall work such days as their supervisors shall direct, but in the event they work in excess of forty (40) hours in a particular work period, then their supervisor shall, when possible, give such employee compensatory time off during the same workweek period only. If such compensatory time is not given to such employee, then such employee shall be compensated for all hours worked in excess of forty (40) hours during the said workweek period at a rate equal to one and one-half (1½) times his/her regular pay scale basis.
Supervisors shall make every effort to assign employees regular work duties and responsibilities which can normally be accomplished within the established workday and workweek period without overtime hours. It is recognized, however, that occasionally some overtime work may be necessary for proper performance of work duties and responsibilities. In the event that such overtime hours are being regularly incurred by a given department, that supervisor shall report the need for additional personnel to the City Administrator for action by the Board of Aldermen.
Elected officials, members of the personal staff of an elected official, appointees of an elected official serving on a policy-making level, professional employees, executive and administrative employees and seasonal employees, as defined by the Fair Labor Standards Act, shall not be entitled to overtime pay nor compensatory time off.
Public safety employees, as defined by the Fair Labor Standards Act, which shall include members of the Police Department who have the power to arrest, but shall not include dispatchers or other administrative support personnel, shall have a standard work period of fourteen (14) consecutive days with tours of duty which do not exceed the lesser of eighty-six (86) hours or the average number of hours of tours of duty for law enforcement personnel as calculated by the United States Department of Labor. The beginning date of each officer's work period shall be established and noted in his/her personnel record. If a public safety employee is required to work more than the prescribed hours during a given work period, he/she shall be given compensatory time off during a given work period. If not possible, he/she shall be compensated for all overtime hours remaining after said compensatory time is taken at the rate of one and one-half (1½) his/her regular pay scale basis.
No overtime shall be payable to any employee of the City until such employee shall have worked the total number of hours in the work period as herein specified. Time off for vacation, holidays, sick leaves or other authorized leave does not count as time worked during a work period.
Nothing in this Section to the contrary, no supervisor shall himself/herself permit any employee to work in excess of forty (40) hours in a particular work period without prior written approval of such overtime by the City Administrator. If the City Administrator is not available, such prior written approval must be obtained from the Mayor or, if he/she shall also not be available, from the President of the Board of Aldermen. No overtime shall be worked by any supervisor or employee without such prior written approval, except on an emergency job requirement. In an emergency job requirement, the supervisor may authorize such overtime, but shall, within twenty-four (24) hours of such authorization, notify the City Administrator in writing and with a full and complete justification of such emergency work.
As provided under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), employees engaged in police and fire protection work may accrue up to four hundred eighty (480) hours of compensatory time. No other employee or supervisor shall accumulate more than thirty (30) compensatory hours. Every effort shall be made to limit the hours of compensatory time for each employee.
