The Shelbina City Council reviewed its City Improvement adjustments and payroll changes for the upcoming fiscal year during Tuesday night’s regular meeting at the Shelbina City Hall.
   Payroll Adjustments
   For Individuals
   Mayor Al Dimmitt, along with council members Babe Simpson, John Smith and Otto Alber discussed the employee review process that took place last year compared to how it’s been done in previous years.
   Shelbina City Superintendent Dennis Klusmeyer said that he felt the way it was done last year with department heads doing them, and the fact that they were a written review, caused hard feelings among employees with their department heads, who they work with daily.
   In previous years, Klusmeyer said he would meet with the employees face to face for the review. They would go over the performance of the employee and determine what they were successful doing and what they needed to work on. It was based on a point system.
   Klusmeyer said it caused some problems with the written evaluations because everyone works with everyone
   Alderman Otto Alber said he thought it was important to make sure they had an accountability of their performance. He noted that a blanket raise doesn’t work. He said he was for performance reviews.
   Assistant Superintendent Rob Trivette said he felt it caused some hard feelings last year the way it was done.
   Alber asked if there was any kind of documentation with the old way Klusmeyer did the review in the past. He said that he did. Klusmeyer added that he would prefer to do the reviews the way they used to be done.
   Dimmitt said he thinks they should give it some thought on how to approach it.
   The council passed a motion to approve the budget for the upcoming fiscal year.
