A Message from Dan Biles:
As you may have heard, the State of Florida recently recognized thousands of local first responders and teachers who were on the frontline of our community during the pandemic by sending them a one-time direct payment. While we are supportive of this effort by the state, we can’t ignore the other local government workers who sacrificed their health/safety, not to mention the mental demands of keeping the ball rolling while the world was in crisis.
With this in mind, the board has enabled us to provide payments to employees who did not qualify under the state's direct payment criteria. As a thank you to our valuable team members who have remained hard at work throughout this very difficult time, the County will provide every team member a bonus (premium pay), which will be paid on the September 17, 2021, paycheck. You will receive one of the following:
Additionally, the County will offer an additional $500 to be paid on November 12, 2021, to all team members who provide proof of their full vaccination status to Barbara Hitzemann or Denise Forman in Human Resources by November 1, 2021. This payment will be made to all fully-vaccinated employees. Employees who are not yet vaccinated are encouraged to sign up for a vaccination at their earliest convenience to be eligible for the one-time payment. Vaccine locations can be found here.
I send you my sincere appreciation for all that you do for each other and for the residents and visitors of Pasco County each and every day.
Thanks - Dan
