Will Volusia County add Veterans Day to its list of paid holidays for its staffers?
County Manager George Recktenwald told the County Council Nov. 2 he had received requests to designate Nov. 11 — or the weekday closest to it if the date falls on a weekend — an official holiday for county employees.
“How much will it cost?” Recktenwald pondered, citing the effects of such an action on the county’s next budget.
The council unanimously agreed to ask Recktenwald to submit information on the impact of having yet another paid holiday on the calendar of Fiscal Year 2022-23.
