Watt?? City tells employees to shut off devices during work
VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) — Talk about pushing their buttons!
Citizens of Vicksburg, Mississippi, complained so much about city workers watching TV and using personal cellphones during business hours that the city has banned the devices at work.
WAPT-TV reported Friday that Vicksburg city leaders say the ban was voted on last week following citizen complaints.
Vicksburg south ward Alderman Alex Monsour says the city’s mayor and Board of Aldermen voted to ban the electronics’ use after getting complaints that included workers texting and watching TV for reasons not related to work.
Monsour says city employees will be written up on first offense and that further offenses will be more severe.
Vicksburg’s police and fire departments are the only exceptions that did not have to turn their TVs in to City Hall.
