Chatfield approves personnel changes

Fri, Nov 1st, 2013
Posted in Chatfield Government

The Chatfield City Council at its October 28 meeting approved the appointment of Patrick O’Neill to the position of wastewater superintendent. Councilor Paul Novotny was absent.

Due to the retirement of Darryl Haner, O’Neill was promoted to the position effective November 1. City Clerk Joel Young said the job description makes it clear that he reports directly to Public Works Director Tony Lammers. O’Neill’s responsibilities will continue to include snow plowing. He has been training for the new position the last couple of years and is familiar with the wastewater treatment plant.

With O’Neill’s promotion the position of assistant wastewater operator will be open. Maintenance Worker Tyler Burke has expressed an interest in eventually qualifying for the assistant position. Lammers said it will take about a year before he can earn the necessary license. Burke does not currently have the required Class D operator’s license. Lammers said Burke will concentrate his time at the plant while also working with public works.

Finally, a motion was approved to start the recruitment process for a maintenance worker to replace Burke.

Kristi Clarke has worked as Chatfield’s city planner for several years and would like to continue in that capacity. Recently, Clarke joined the consulting firm of Bolton and Menk, Inc. in Rochester, Minn. Bolton and Menk submitted a proposal which has similar terms as her former agreement to allow her to continue as Chatfield’s consultant. She will be in the office at City Hall for five hours per day, two days per week, plus an additional four hours per week outside of City Hall. The monthly fee for those services will be $3,700. Any services in addition to those included in the monthly rate will be billed at the rate of $110 per hour.

Young noted the proposal is identical to her previous agreement except for the hourly rate for additional services which would be outside of the regular scope of her work. He recommended approval. A motion to enter into an agreement for Clarke’s services was approved.
