McMinnville officials are considering a change to the city’s current policy regarding longevity pay, a switch that one alderman says is motivated by a desire to benefit a single city employee.Alderman Ken Smith says there is a glitch in the longevity pay that needs correcting.“I want to make the Board of Mayor and Aldermen aware there is a glitch in the policy and procedures with regard to our longevity pay we give to employees,” said Smith on Tuesday night.Smith informed the board the personnel issue will be brought before Finance Committee members, of which he is chairman, on Nov. 12.According to the city’s current policy, longevity pay is to reward employees who have provided continuous service to the city. Longevity pay is awarded to all full-time employees with at least three years of continuous service up to a maximum if 30 years.To be eligible for longevity pay, the employee must be considered a full-time, active employee at the time checks are distributed. Longevity pay will be based on employee’s anniversary date in the calendar year the pay is to be issued.
