New work hours, overtime policy approved

FOX TWP. – Recently the Fox Township Supervisors approved employee work hours and changes to the overtime policy as a cost-saving measure for the township.The policy, which was introduced by Supervisor Dave Mattiuz at the board's March meeting, was approved in a 2-1 vote with Randy Gradizzi casting an opposing vote while Mike Keller and Mattiuz voted for the new policy.Recreational Facilities Director Debby Agosti said due to decreasing revenue from the landfill, which the township collects as part of its host fee, the park will be cutting back on costs on their three largest events, the July 3 fireworks display, the Last Day of School Celebration and Light Up Night.This was discussed during a recent Fox Township Recreational Board meeting. Agosti noted the Rec Board has always been prepared to adjust its budget due to decreasing landfill revenue.
