Chief, manager get high marks


Brett Lester Brett Lester Contract negotiations for continued employment can proceed following positive job performance evaluations for the Sandusky City Manager and Chief of Police.

Police Chief Brett Lester’s contract expires first, in February, and will be worked on first, said city Manager Dave Faber, whose own contract runs for another 18 months.

The administrators were evaluated in eight categories: Intellectual Abilities, Work Habits, Communication, Budget, Employee Relations, Personal Traits, Managing and Controlling, and Planning.

The five-score rating scale included 1 (Outstanding), 2 (Very Good), 3 (Satisfactory), 4(Fair) and 5 (Poor).

Faber received a composite rating of 1.74 in his evaluation by the mayor and six city council members. He received a 1 rating from Mayor Tom Lukshaitis, and the following scores from council members: Marguerite McNiven, 1.05; Norton Schramm, 1.16; Sandra Barr, 1.73; Virginia Bissett, 2.31; Doug Guibord, 2.84; and Larry Mitchell, 2.08.

Lester’s composite score was 1.50, with a 1 from the mayor and the following from council: Schramm, 1.08; Barr, 1.15; McNiven, 1.21; Guibord, 1.97; Bissett, 2.03; and Mitchell, 2.07.

In other recent business, council voted to seek bids from contractors for curb and paving of one block each of Worth and Hart streets, off Sanilac Avenue. The work will be done in August or September, and if there’s money left in the budget, other streets may be milled and receive an inch of new blacktop, said Faber.

The city has delayed the sand blasting and repainting of the water tower until next year. By then, there should be enough in the budget for the project estimated to cost $350,000 to $375,000, said Faber.
