Employee safety and recognizability, city pride and accountability to tax dollar spending are just a few of the reasons we implemented an Employee Clothing Allowance Policy.
Employees have been receiving a contractual clothing allowance for years with no accountability to the spend. Effective 2/26/21, employees will now be accountable to those dollars. Each employee receiving the allowance will be required to purchase 1 warm weather and 1 cold weather City of Fulton branded item. Additionally they will be required to submit receipts for their annual purchases, showing that their purchases are used for the contractual purpose intended and that all money is used for that purpose.
We partnered with local vendors: Cortini’s, Fulton Screenprinting, Uniforms Etc, B&T Sports and Upward Graphics to strongly encourage all employees to shop local.
We will continue to go line item by line item to improve our policies and procedures and make wiser more responsible spending decisions.
