Agenda Report # 45


TO: Mayor and Council

SUBJECT: FY2017 Holiday Schedule

INITIATED BY: City Manager's Office

Recommendation: Approval is requested to approve the attached Holiday Schedule for the FY2017 Budget Year. It is recommended that Friday, December 23, 2016 be designated as the floating holiday.

Background: The Holiday Schedule has historically been approved by City Council to assist various departments and organizations in developing their calendar schedules. All holidays are established with the exception of the floating holiday.

Analysis: The floating holiday has traditionally been used to extend a date specific holiday (Independence Day, Christmas or New Year's Day) to provide a long weekend for employees. This fiscal year we are recommending Friday, December 23, 2016 be designated as the floating holiday.

Alternatives: The floating holiday could be designated to follow a day specific holiday, for example, extending a holiday weekend or adding Good Friday as an option. The floating holiday could also be designated to recognize some other event or occasion.

Financial Considerations: None.

Projected Annual Fiscal Impact Statement: The City will not incur any additional cost in future years for in approving the request.

Recommendation: Approval is requested of the attached Holiday Schedule for the FY2017 Budget designating Friday, December 23, 2016, as the floating holiday.
