Resolution 2018-127, designating a Holiday Closure from December 24, 2018 through
SUBJECT:
January 1, 2019.

RECOMMENDATION:
Approve a Resolution to designate the 2018 Holiday Closure from December 24, 2018 - January 1, 2019.

BACKGROUND/SUMMARY:
Over the course of the last few years, staff has been informally tracking the walk-ins into City Hall and reported a
decrease in customers during the holiday period. Based on the decreased activity, the increase in vacation
requests from employees, the City is requesting a holiday closure from December 24, 2018 - January 1, 2019.
The City recognizes Christmas Eve, December 24; Christmas Day, December 25, and New Years Day,
January 1st as observed holidays.

All essential services such as Police and Ambulance will remain open 24/7 during this time period. Also, Library
will remain open over the holiday closure along with other identified staff members throughout the City to provide
essential services to our community. City buildings such as City Hall and Public Works will shut down during this
time period.

Below is the holiday closure period.

FISCAL IMPACT:
The City will have cost savings in utilities such as gas and electric since City buildings will be shut down during
this time period. In addition, this will lower the vacation leaves accruals that lowers the City's overall payroll
liability.
