All requests for overtime services must be submitted either in writing using our Overtime Services Request Form or via our online form by an authorized representative of the Contractor or Developer. Each project will require a separate request form. All requests must be received no later than 3:30pm two business days prior to the date of work to be performed (i.e., NLT 3:30pm Wednesday for work on a given Saturday). The Town of Leesburg reserves the right to deny any request for overtime services due to weather, operational concerns, staff availability, or any other unforeseen circumstances.
Cancellation by the developer for any reason should be made as early as possible but no later than noon on the last business day prior to the scheduled work. The developer will be billed a minimum charge if work is cancelled after that time. There will be a minimum charge of 2 hours per day; however, if multiple projects are scheduled and the Town is able to cover them with a single inspector, the total time charged for all projects will be a minimum of 2 hours and each project is billed based upon actual time spent on each. The current rate for overtime services is $70 per hour.
This process also applies to "minor" holidays normally observed by the State of Virginia and Town of Leesburg, but not generally by the construction industry. "Minor" holidays include Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, President's Day, Columbus Day, and Veterans Day. "Major" holidays will only be covered for extreme cases at the sole discretion of Town of Leesburg and the same process would apply. "Major" holidays are New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and the Friday after, Christmas Eve after noon, Christmas Day and the day after. On occasion the State of Virginia or Town of Leesburg may add holidays to the calendar. As much advance notice as possible will be provided in these cases.
