5-3-Oq <br />F -23 <br />USE OF CITY TELEPHONES AND CALLING CARDS <br />PURPOSE <br />To establish the policy for the use of City telephones and calling cards. <br />POLICY <br />Department directors may obtain a telephone calling card from the Telecommunica- <br />tions Division to charge official City telephone calls to their department utility budgets <br />while away from the office. Charging such call shall be strictly limited to official City <br />business. The department director may authorize the use of these calling cards by <br />others within their department. If a personal call is charged to the calling card, it is the <br />responsibility of the department director to make sure the City is reimbursed for the <br />cost of the personal telephone call. <br />If personal telephone calls are made from either the City's regular or cellular <br />telephones, the caller should make arrangements to reimburse the City for the cost of <br />these calls. One exception to this rule is, if an employee is required to work late, they <br />may telephone their family to inform them of their extended working hours. <br />If an employee has to make or accept an emergency telephone call from a City <br />telephone, they should likewise make arrangements to reimburse the City for the cost of <br />such calls. <br />The Telecommunications Division will make available to each department a listing of <br />the telephone calls charged to each telephone within each department. <br />Adopted - January 24,1994 <br />Amended — March 22,1999 <br />Formerly J -5 <br />1
