The following was brought up by the town chairman. It is as follows:
I would like to have all town employees begin recording their starting and stopping times. Also, they should write brief descriptions of the tasks completed. This will accomplish four things. First, we will be able to calculate or verify the hours they are claiming. Second, we will be able to track the time of day their work is being done, in case there is ever a need for proof for an insurance claim. Third, it will help us with planning our labor needs in the future. We might want to change the number of people working together to create backup employees for jobs that only have one person doing them right now. Fourth, it will give us the proof needed to show the townsperson why we need the labor we are paying. Saving money is good, but quickly and efficiently serving the township is my goal.
I suggest a punch clock in the town hall garage and handwritten time cards for the recycling center. But, a handwritten time card with starting and stopping times is my minimum request.
Also, I would like security locks on the office door and a key box to house all spare keys to give access to all town vehicles, building and the recycling center. This will allow access to all town locations for both the authorized town employees and the fire department personnel. I suggest the box be placed inside the town garage and close to the shop service door.
My requests aren’t difficult to do and I want my efforts to be recorded in the minutes for future discussion.
A motion was made but died for lack of a second, therefore, no action was taken.
Motion Lefeber, seconded Anhalt that the town NOT plow any private driveways. Motion carried.
The next town board meeting will be on Tuesday, March 4, 2014.
Motion Anhalt, seconded Endries to adjourn the meeting. Motion carried.
