PLYMOUTH ‚ÄĒ Plymouth‚Äôs Common Council has made it official: There is one less paid holiday on the calendar for city employees and Plymouth firefighters will have the equivalent of two less.

Consensus of the Council members was that the city needed to adopt a calendar more in keeping with the private sector, which in many cases, offers as few as eight days a year.
