§ 2-228.03. Requests and payment.  

Latest version.
  • (a) The employee must request the method of funding (advance or reimbursement) by submitting Human Resources Form 007 for approval. In order to process the request in a timely manner, employees should make every effort to request necessary funding as soon as school schedules are released. Failure to obtain approval in advance will result in requests for reimbursement being denied.

    (b) Employees receiving a tuition advance must submit a paid receipt from the college or university for classes and books to the HR. Employees requesting reimbursement upon completion of the class must also submit paid receipts.

    (c) Employees are encouraged to attend any accredited Florida college or university; however, tuition reimbursement shall be paid at the public college or university tuition rate. Correspondence schools will not be considered for tuition reimbursement. Employees shall not be reimbursed for mileage or personal expenses unless they are required by the city manager to take the course.

    (d) The employee shall submit to the city manager the final grade, certification, or degree immediately upon receipt from the school.
