City of Alexandria, Virginia

MEMORANDUM

DATE: DECEMBER 8, 2009

TO: ALL CITY EMPLOYEES

FROM: CHERYL D. ORR, DIRECTOR, HUMAN RESOURCES DEPARTMENT

SUBJECT: CITY OPERATIONS UNDER SNOW CONDITIONS AND NEW VOIP EMERGENCY PHONE NUMBER

As the snow season approaches, we encourage City employees to be prepared for inclement weather conditions. Our policy is that City offices will be open for business during snowstorms and snow emergencies.

Generally, when getting into work is very difficult due to snow and ice, the City alerts employees that a liberal leave policy is in effect. This permits Department Heads - after ensuring that offices are adequately staffed - to approve requests for annual leave, compensatory leave, or leave without pay if employees are unable to come to work. Under a liberal leave situation, employees must call their departments immediately after opening to request liberal leave.

Please note that when liberal leave is declared, emergency employees (those in jobs that are vital to public health, safety and welfare) are expected to report for work on time. Check with your supervisor if you are unsure whether you are an emergency employee.

When the City is on liberal leave, we will reschedule all City-wide training classes.

If the City is operating on a liberal leave basis, we will advise local television and radio stations. Most will carry City snow information beginning early, at 6:00 a.m. In addition, you can call the City's 24-hour Emergency Hotline at (703) 746-INFO (4636). This is the new VOIP number, so please update your directories. You may also visit the City’s web site (http://alexandriava.gov) to see announcements on the City’s status. In the rare occurrence of a status conflict between a TV or radio announcement and the City’s announcement, the City’s announcement will prevail.

If you have any questions about the City's snow policy, please call the Human Resources Department at (703)746-3777.
