Sick Leave Donation Policy Receives Board's Approval

The Board of Mayor and Aldermen on Tuesday considered and approved a measure to begin a Town-wide Sick Leave Donation Policy.

The policy would allow employees to donate their sick time to another employee who has a medical condition that may have put the other employee in a situation where he or she has run out of personal, sick, and vacation days.

Employees have been allowed to donate sick time in the past, but this measure puts standards and guidelines in place for the sake of consistency.

The measure, which passed unanimously, comes at no cost to the Town.


A public hearing was held and consideration given to an update of the Municipal Flood Plain Zoning Ordinance.

The Greeneville Regional Planning Commission recommended approval of the ordinance, which makes updates to the town's Flood Plain Ordinance as required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

The ordinance was written by FEMA.

It passed unanimously on first reading.


A request for rezoning of 0.42 acres of property on Greene County Tax Map 110G, Group B, Parcel 010.00 from R-2 (Medium-Density Residential) to B-4 (Arterial Business), located at 106 Idletime Drive was passed unanimously on first reading.

The Planning Commission recommended approval of the measure.


Aldermen also unanimously approved a Consent to Assignment for Solid Waste Disposal Agreement.

The agreement is the result of the currently-contracted company Tidy Waste being acquired by a different corporation, Waste Industries.

A representative from the company, David Duke, Government Municipal Contract Manager, noted that Waste Industries was founded in 1970 in Raleigh, N.C., and currently operates in seven states -- Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Maryland, and Delaware.

Town Administrator Todd Smith said that Town Attorney Ron Woods had reviewed the document, which will make the agreement retroactive to Jan. 1, 2013.

The measure is also expected to be approved by the Greene County Commission during a meeting to be held next week.
