All sources should be evaluated including the HTE work order module, existing City mapping GIS data base, any other internal capability, as well as outside vendors. The data base system must be compatible with existing City software, including Granite for TV inspection. See attached sheet Co supersize evalurtion of Hace gous ‘The previous sheet has the 2010 GOALS that were established by Bill’s previous supervisor and as scored by Bill in his self evaluation. I have the following comments and seores on these goals: Safety programs - Complete ME Quantifiable goats a, This goal is really not attainable. This year is a very good example of why this is not a reliable measure. The heavy rains resulted in many wet weather related sewer bypasses including wastewater backing up in basements causing many emergency calls. These calls are to be expected due to the rains, This is not a variable that Bill can control or manipulate to achieve the stated goal. I would disagree with Bill's rating of IE and would instead give him a ME due to the circumstances. b, The 1,700,000 feet of sewer main to be cleaned has never been accomplished in the utility’s history. 1,690,570 feet of main was cleaned in 2009 and the next previous high was 944,065 feet in 1975. Again, the heavy rains and the large number of wet weather sewer bypasses that occurred caused the need for crews to-clean up the bypasses instead of performing normal maintenance operations. I do not agree with Bills rating of IE and would again go to ME as I feel the numerical value was set unreasonably high, Same comments for CCTV inspection as for cleaning in item b. above. Sewer line repair and replacement is performed as necessary. A large portion of structural main repair/replacement is now performed using cast in place pipe techniques. Sewer mains are only exeavated and repaired/replaced as needed. if it was only necessary to repair/replace 180 feet of sewer main then T consider that to be an indication that proper maintenance and CIPP work is being performed. Bill could have unnecessarily replaced 450 feet of main just because it could be done and to meet this goal. Bill has much better judgment than that and I disagree with his rating of IE and would again give and ME, ae Computer data base system goal My understanding is that this was bid once before and IT rejected all bids. Additionally, this is something IT, various PW divisions and other City departments need to work on and agree ‘on the best data base system for the City. Talso understand the funding has been rolled over form 09 to 10 and may be rolled over again to 11. I do not disagree with the ND rating but do think itis outside of Bill’s control at this point and do not think that should reflect negatively on his performance individually, GOALS EE: Exceeds Expectations, 4 points ME: Meets Expectations, 3 points ND: Needs Further Development, 2 points IE: Improvement Expected, 4 points AIL SCORE Review and update the Sewer Maintenance Operations Manual, Confined Space Program and the Trenching/Shoring Program at least once per year. Work with engineering and other City staff in the development and inplementation of the proposed inflow and infiltration reduction program. Continue to schedule routine cleaning and inspection of sewer mains in such a manner that the 5 and 10 year frequency goals are maintained. Continue to provide excellent customer service. Continue to share your knowledge and experience with other staff members so that it may be utilized to the maximum. ‘SUPERVISOR COMMENTS: SUPERVISOR COMMENTS AND SIGNATURE ‘SUPERVISOR COMMENTS: Thave only worked with Bill since May, during this short time | have been very impressed by his knowledge and ability to effectively manage the line maintenance section of the utility.
