|The City of St. Mary's is insured by Alaska Municipal League Joint Insurance Association, Inc (AMLJIA). A June 24, 2013 phone conversation with AMLJIA indicated that the city had renewed its policy for FY14. The 'City of St. Mary's Employee Handbook', adopted in 1996, is on file at the Bethel regional office. Job descriptions for water and sewer/utility director and assistant operator for the water and wastewater services are on file at the Bethel regional office. Copies of City Ordinance Chapter 2.05 and 2.09 stipulating the powers, duties and responsibilities of the city clerk and city manager are also on file. Examples of evaluations that tie an employee's performance to his job description have not been provided. During the May 20-23, 2013 RUBA assessment, a written hiring process was not found in the Employee Handbook or the city's code of ordinances. However, the city manager was provided with an example of a written hiring protocol and intends to incorporate it into the Employee Handbook when updated. The city's personnel files all contained federal I-9 forms. However, not all the files contained job applications or letters of acceptance that included wages, benefits, expectations of the employer, classification of job, and date of hire. The city manager asked how she could meet this sustainable indicator for long term employees whose files did not contain their original application or a letter of acceptance. Bethel staff advised the manager to draft an agreement that included the employee's current job description and date of hire, current wages, expectations of the employer, along with signature and date lines for both the employee and their supervisor. When the signed agreements are provided to RUBA staff, compliance for the 'The utility has personnel folders on every employee that contain at least: I-9, Job Application and Letter of Acceptance' sustainable indicator will be considered. The city's employee handbook briefly mentions a probationary period for evaluating new employees. Informal interviews with employees during December 16-19, 2012 and May 20-23, 2013 visits indicated training opportunities are provided by the city and staff is encouraged to develop and increase their skills. The city manager attended 32 hour RUBA sponsored Personnel Management and Planning trainings held in Anchorage from September 9-13 and December 9-13, 2013, respectively.
