Feb. 20, 2020 — City manager’s message: As you are aware, Hampton and the region have been experiencing snowfall this evening. Although our road conditions are generally fairly good as I write this email, our overriding goal when assessing operational status is safety. Slushy conditions could result in some freezing during the early morning hours when temperatures are projected to dip, thus causing a need for a slower morning commute. Additionally, Hampton City Schools (along with most schools in the region) has decided to close schools tomorrow, meaning that many of you may have childcare related challenges. Therefore, we will be delaying the official opening of city offices until 9 am and then offering liberal leave for any time beyond that for those non-emergency essential employees who have unanticipated child care issues and/or are concerned about personal commutes on roads. Liberal leave may be used for the entire day or part of it, as needed and coordinated with supervisors/department heads.
