The purposes of the performance evaluation plan are several and are set forth below:
Evaluate individual work performance.

[CC 1996 §130.440; Ord. No. 1030 §1, 12-8-1997]
Timing. Each employee will be evaluated annually, one (1) month prior to his/her anniversary date of employment or promotion.
Evaluators. The immediate supervisor will evaluate the employees for whom they are directly responsible. If an employee has had more than one (1) immediate supervisor during the previous year, each of those supervisors should evaluate the employee individually and then meet amongst themselves to develop and agree upon a joint evaluation. The evaluations conducted by the immediate supervisor(s) will be reviewed, in turn, by the City Administrator.
Evaluation Interview And Discussion. The current immediate supervisor will meet with the employee being evaluated. The written evaluation will be shared with the employee. At the conclusion of the evaluation interview, the employee will sign the evaluation form. Signing the form by the employee does not indicate whether or not they are in agreement with the evaluation.
Merit Pay Increases. Based on the performance evaluation, employees will advance in their pay grade or remain at the same pay step as set forth in Section 130.390. Any advancement in their pay grade will take effect on their anniversary date of employment or promotion.
