Council amends ‘on call’ status for maintenance employees

At the meeting of April 10, Alburtis Borough Council passed a motion adopting Ordinance No. 556 amending section 12-204 for maintenance department employees when they are scheduled to be “on call.”

Maintenance employees are scheduled to be on call when the maintenance department is closed during holidays, weekends, evenings and any other time. The employee on call will be paid $100 for each week they are scheduled on call. If they are called out they will get their hourly wage in addition to the $100, but if they are not called out, they will receive $100.
