(A)   The city recognizes the principle of progressive discipline for offenses that do not merit summary discharge.  Depending upon the seriousness of the offense one of the following disciplinary measures shall apply:
      (1)   Written reprimand.
      (2)    Three-day suspension from work without pay.
      (3)    Discharge.
   (B)   It is felt that in most instances offenses are of minor nature and in such instances the supervisor shall discuss the matter with the employee.  This oral procedure is not considered disciplinary action.
   (C)   Disciplinary measures that become part of the employee's personal record shall not be maintained as part of that record beyond 12 months from the date of the disciplinary action, providing there is no progressive discipline given the employee during this 12-month time period.
   (D)   The disciplinary procedure outlined above may not necessarily apply to probationary, part-time, or temporary employees.
