We have received many humorous Christmas emails and decided to share with our many readers. We like many of you are busy with Christmas wrapping , decorating and working on other postings. So enjoy...

Holiday Office Memo

To: All City Employees
From: City Operation Manager
Subject: Office conduct during Christmas season

Effective immediately, city employees should keep in mind the following guidelines in compliance with FROLIC (the Federal Revelry Office and Leisure Industry Council).

1. Running aluminum foil through the Mayor's paper shredder to make tinsel is discouraged.

2. Playing Jingle Bells on the push-button phone is forbidden (it runs up an incredible long distance bill) and you know how the blogs are tearing us up over taxpayers paying high phone bills. We highly recommend that you use your Department Heads' Cell Phone.

3. Work requests are not to be filed under "Bah humbug." It confuses the Mayor.

4. Police cars are not to be used to go over the river and through the woods to Grandma's house.

5. All fruitcakes is to be eaten BEFORE July 25. (This was part of the contract package.)

6. Egg Nog will NOT be dispensed in the mayor's water cooler this year.

In spite of all this, the staff is encouraged to have a Happy Holiday.


Freedom of Speech would like to thank the employees who submitted this from the City County Building.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday to all of you.
