Title
Repealing current Toledo Municipal Code Section 2101.37; and enacting a new Toledo Municipal Code Section 2101.37; and declaring an emergency.

Body
SUMMARY & BACKGROUND:
Toledo Municipal Code Chapter 2101 governs the terms and conditions of employment for the City of Toledo's Classified Exempt and Executive Exempt employees. Specifically, TMC Section 2101.37 states the paid holidays for those employees. Most of those holidays conform with the holidays recognized by the Federal government for its employees. Recognizing that Juneteenth (June 19th) was recently declared a Federal holiday, and further recognizing that Columbus Day has been re-named Indigenous People's Day for many state and local jurisdictions, the City wishes to also conform to current times. Thus, this Ordinance repeals Section 2101.37 Paid Holidays, and enacts a new Toledo Municipal Code Section 2101.37, to replace Good Friday with Juneteenth and change the name of Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day.

The current Toledo Municipal Code Section 2101.37 is hereby repealed and replaced with a new Section 2101.37, as indicated below.
