Standards of Conduct
One of the primary objectives of the City is to establish and administer a non- discriminatory system of operations and personnel management consistent with the goal of providing superior service to the community, by employing and retaining individuals of the highest caliber whom display pride and dignity in the performance of their duties.
An employee of the City represents the City in all his dealings with the public and in a special way City employees are “Good Will Ambassadors.” Such status involves a degree of duty and obligation regarding public and private conduct that is not common to other classes of employees. A City employee’s appearance, attitude and behavior all announce to customers, “The Taxpayers,” what may be expected from the City’s government. For these reasons, the City stresses the importance of professionalism, respectfulness, honesty, a good public image and courteous behavior as minimum standards for employees.
It is the policy of the City to expect from its employee’s compliance with all personnel rules and regulations, applicable state statutes and federal regulations in the performance of duties, as well as compliance with all safety rules and standards.
