11. Human Resources

For Possible Action: Presentation by Chuck Shields, President, Talent Plus, Inc., regarding the Voices 360© survey, action by the Board of Supervisors to select the skills/competencies from the Lominger Placement Map that will be used in the evaluation and action by the Board of Supervisors to establish categories of raters for participation in the evaluation. (Melanie Bruketta)

Staff Summary: On September 1, 2011, the Board of Supervisors directed the Human Resources Director to obtain the services for a 360© evaluation of the City Manager in January, 2012. Chuck Shields, President of Talent Plus, Inc., was selected to perform the service. Mr. Shields will conduct a Voices 36018 evaluation.

12. Public Works

For Possible Action: To adopt, on second reading, Bill No. 119 an ordinance amending Title 12, Water, Sewerage and Drainage, Chapter 12.12, Solid Waste Management, Section 12.12.047, Landfill Rates and Fees, by lowering the fee for out-of-county Class III, additionally, the minimum fee for this category is lowered to $20.00 from the existing $30.00, effective October 21, 2011, and other matters properly related thereto.

The fee for this category had an unanticipated effect on the customers that haul this type of material from out-of-county. A decrease to the proposed $36.50 per ton versus the existing $58.00 per ton will regain this customer base. Correspondingly, the minimum fee for this category is proposed to be lowered to $20.00 from the existing $30.00.
