AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- Augusta's Law and IT departments are working on a new online job evaluation form for city employees. News 12 has learned that some city employees are about a year past due on job performance evaluations.
It's the report card for adults who have a job. Last year, Augusta city employees did not bring one of these home.
Interim HR Director Mike Blanchard told News12 that city employees were not evaluated at all last year. In 10 years, the city administrator has only been evaluated once and three other high-ranking employees, including City Attorney Andrew Mackenzie, may have never been.
If you had to grade the city attorney's performance, what would you give him A to F?
"There is some things I got a problem with. There's something not being handled like I think they should," said Commissioner Marion Williams.
The city doesn't even have a way to grade the city administrator, city attorney or two other high-ranking department heads.
If you all haven't had that in the past, who's looking to see if you're doing your job?
"That was the concern of this new commission in 2013, I can't speak to what happen in the previous commission," said Commissioner Donnie Smith.
The interim HR director says the new department head evaluation will look similar to the one used for regular employees. Each commissioner will have a chance to answer it on online.
