County employees want answers about sick leave buy back
Some Webb County employees are looking for answers after hearing a program that usually gets them a few extra dollars was cancelled.
The program is called the Sick Leave Buy Back Program, where employees get to sell back their sick leave hours to the County.
According to County officials, the program was part of the incentives that were done away with after the budget was approved.
Still, a representative of the County Attorneys Office says there will be discussions next week over whether or not to keep the program, including negotiations with those who are under civil service:
“We’re going to look into that. We're going to look into seeing if we can bring it back.”
Valdez did not say when the program would continue.
