|One of the things that RUBA checked was the city clerk's ability to learn fairly complex financial issues, such as the Power Cost Equalization (PCE) program reports done by the city. The city owns and runs the electric utility. The city administrator taught the city clerk how to do the PCE reports. Apparently, the training was very effective, since the electric utility received over $27,000 in PCE subsidies last year.
The city, despite being very small, is very well organized and has good personnel policies that is followed. Most of the employees are long-time except for the new water plant operator, who was hired in October, 2007. He already is Provisional 1 (formerly OIT) certified.|
