The Albertville City Council in Alabama recently approved a measure pertaining to the recording of overtime employee attendance, according to the Sand Mountain Reporter.

The city's personnel and purchasing director, Gary Nunnally, noted that while the city has reported overtime in the past, the new requirement will make employee tracking more specific, breaking down how each overtime hour was spent.

"We're just trying to define what those ... hours are for," he said, as quoted by the news source. "It's just a tool for the council to look at overtime in general and see why it's happening and if it's absolutely necessary."

"We felt like maybe we could cut down on some of the overtime if we were careful," added council president Diane McClendon, quoted by the media outlet.

Elsewhere in the country, the city of Louisville, Kentucky, is also cracking down on its time and attendance policies after it was revealed that 10 percent of city employees earned more than $15,000 in overtime this year.
