Employees are allowed to accrue in excess of 40 hours, except for commissioned fire personnel, who shall be allowed to accrue 56 hours. These maximums may be exceeded only upon the express written authorization of the City Manager after a written request of the employee’s Department Head, but in no event shall authorization be given to accrue compensatory time in excess of 180 hours. Hours of compensatory time in excess of the above maximums must be used prior to June 30 next succeeding the date on which such authorized excess compensatory time is earned. Such excess compensatory time not used prior to the June 30 date shall not be carried over to subsequent periods.
