Article II. Vacation Leave

Section 03.04.220 Use and Deferral

  1. An employee may use vacation leave as accrued after satisfactory completion of one year of continuous active service with prior approval of the department head or designated supervisor. The supervisor schedules vacation leave so as to meet the operating requirements of the City and, as far as practicable, the preference of the employees.
  2. No employee may take vacation leave in excess of the accrual credited to the employee’s vacation account at the time the vacation is taken.
  3. All employees are expected to utilize their annual vacation leave. All employees are required to take vacation leave so that an employee’s total accumulation does not exceed the maximum authorized by SMC 3.04.200(D), but for good and sufficient reason upon the recommendation of the department head, the mayor or his designee may allow vacation leave accrual beyond the maximum prescribed, when such extension serves the best interest of the City.
