Athens County Engineer Archie Stanley announced Monday that his workers "shall remain under the current policy for sick leave payout."
Stanley recently proposed that retiring employees be given 100 percent of accumulated sick leave. It's a move that reportedly could have cost the county more than $100,000.
That immediately drew a lot of criticism from people, including Jeff Maiden who beat Stanley in the Democratic primary.
It is unclear why Stanley decided to remain under the current policy as opposed to his plan.
When WOUB News called the engineer's office to ask, the operator declined to comment and hung up the phone.
