Town of Mocksville employees could get two additional holidays if town board members approve a new personnel policy next month.
The new holidays will be President’s Day and Juneteenth, taking the number of paid holidays from 12 to 14.
Stacy Griffin, a management analyst with the Piedmont Triad Regional Council, worked with town leaders to update the policy.
The town’s past policy was piecemeal, and taken from policies in other towns, she said. “We needed to tailor something for Mocksville.” If approved, the new policy would replace several others.
The new policy also would not allow tobacco use in any town building or vehicle, and includes a social media and technology section similar to the one used by Davie County. All job openings would be posted internally for five days before seeking public applications.
The old policy would not allow a town employee to seek a public office. The new policy would only not allow them to seek the office of Mocksville mayor or board member.
