Policy Procedure
Uniforms and Dress Code


Section 7.15 of the city employee handbook states the following:


City employees are expected to exercise due care in the maintenance of all uniform items. Uniforms shall be neat and clean when reporting to work. Although it is understandable that employees in certain departments will be unable to keep the uniform clean while working, they should still strive to remain as neat in appearance as possible (shirt tucked in, etc.). When uniform items become unserviceable or unsightly, employees shall report such fact to his/her supervisor to initiate replacement.


Employees issued a uniform shall wear the uniform at all times while on duty. If a cap or hat is provided by the City, the employee shall wear the cap or hat provided and shall refrain from wearing a personal cap or hat.
