I closed early on Wednesday; only two employees were affected by the
closure.  We don't have a policy so I used part of a floating holiday.

Subject: snow days

Hello-  I was wondering how other towns were dealing with the situation of
days taken off due to the snowstorm last week.  We decided to close town
hall on Weds, and then people also couldn't get in on Thursday bacause some
were snowed in and our parking lot had 3 feet of snow in it until 3 pm.  The
question is this: Do employees have to use vacation time for these days, or
should they be paid time off and considered beyond their control.  I am a
believer in the second option as I don't think employees had a choice in the
matter.  Just wondering how other towns are handling this in terms of
payroll.  Thanks!!  Missy
