Sick time donations causing headaches for county

The local practice of county employees responding to the need of another by donating a portion of their accrued sick leave hours became a headache for members of the Franklin County Commissioners Court.

During their Monday morning meeting it was pointed out that it is not being done as prescribed by law. Six items on the agenda for the day were that type of donation. See the November 30 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for the rest of this story.
