County Employees get 13 Paid Holidays in 2014

September 19, 2013

  09/20/13 Marshall County Employees will receive thirteen (13) paid holidays next year.  On Monday the Marshall County Commissioner approved the 2014 Holiday Schedule with one change.  

Washington’s Birthday which is in February was moved to December 24th giving county employees Wednesday and Thursday, December 25th off for their Christmas vacation.  That day was changed to Friday, December 26th instead of the 24th giving employees a four day weekend. 

Marshall County commissioner Kevin Overmyer noted that having the county buildings shut down for December 24th and 25th is typical but having to open back up on the 26th and then be closed for the weekend seemed like a waste of controlling energy costs for the county.

Debbie Palmer, the county’s HR Director conducted a spontaneous poll of some employees with the majority of them preferring the four day weekend verses December 24th and 25th. 

A complete listing of county holidays for 2014 include:

New Year’s Day – Wednesday, January 1st

Martin Luther King Jr. Day – Monday, January 20th

Good Friday – Friday, April 18TH

Primary Election Day – Tuesday, May 6th

Memorial Day – Monday, May 26th

Independence Day – Friday, July 4th

Labor Day – Monday September 1st

Election Day – Tuesday, November 4th

Veteran’s Day – Tuesday, November 11th

Thanksgiving Day – Thursday, November 27th

Lincoln’s Birthday – Friday, November 28th

Washington’s Birthday – Friday, December 26th

Christmas day – Thursday, December 25th

    I’m excited the County employees get the day off the celebrate Kwanza. (smile) In reality, when I worked I always thought employees needed a day off in February and March. Kudos to the County commissioners and the County Council for thinking of employees with a raise, the last couple years, and benefits. All in all Marshall County Government was a good place to work.
