Prior to the adoption of Ord. 21828 on 09/16/2013, Section 19-209 read as follows.

    An employee leaving the city service is responsible for returning any city property which may have been in the employee's his/her possession. Upon termination, such property must be returned to the department from which the employee is terminating. Failure to return city property will result in the final check being held up and/or having the  amount of property value deducted from the pay check as recommended by the department head , provided final pay does not fall below minimum wage rate for hours worked . All separations shall be processed on forms provided by the director and sufficiently in advance of the effective date to enable calculation and adjustment of the final check in terms of leave debits, credit union debts (if applicable), total eligible hours to be paid; and related considerations. The director shall establish eligibility for the total final remuneration in consultation with appropriate departments.
