KAYSVILLE, Utah (AP) -- Kaysville City Library workers will be forgiven after they walked out to protest a decision to merge with Davis County Library System.

Mayor Brian Cook said as long as it doesn't happen again, they've decided to move on.

The council's vote on Tuesday to merge the two libraries sparked the one-day worker sickout. sickout on Wednesday.

The library was closed for a portion of the day after the eleven employees walked out.

Davis County Library Director Pete Giacoma said workers don't need to fear retribution from the county for their actions. The county's employment policies prevent officials from holding a grudge -- if they had one -- against them at hiring time.

The merger still has to be approved by the Davis County Commission, which is likely to happen next week.
