Columbus Day a victim of the economy for city employees

September 16, 2010

PLYMOUTH — Plymouth’s Common Council has made it official: There is one less paid holiday on the calendar for city employees and Plymouth firefighters will have the equivalent of two less.
Mayor Mark Senter’s administration presented a paid holiday calendar with the normal 13 paid holidays that had always been presented over the years, and that schedule came into question by the Council. Consensus of the Council members was that the city needed to adopt a calendar more in keeping with the private sector, which in many cases, offers as few as eight days a year.
