There are job descriptions in place for the City's employees and descriptions were provided for the City positions. Performance evaluations have not been established or put into place by the City staff, however, at the Mayor's request, a sample evaluation was provided by RUBA. The City has adopted a personnel policy for the city that was revised by the council on June 15, 1995. As of August 23, 2007, the City's personnel policy is generally adequate but staff agrees the policy should be updated to include an evaluation process. New hires receive a 90-day probation period, then the Council performs a verbal evaluation to determine whether the probationary employee should be retained permanently or dismissed. The decision is reflected in the minutes. |
