City Manager Response to Citizen Comments City Council Hearing of Visitors July 7, 2015 John Vorderkunz (1811 Greig Drive) – Commented on the general repair work and maintenance (shredding in ditches, culvert, and speed limit on Grieg), and phone system. Stated no returned phone calls by City. General Repair Work The City Manager contacted Mr. Vorderkunz several days after the City Council meeting and went and met with him at his home. It was discussed to clean out the ditch in front of his house along Grieg Drive to a point toward the creek in which it would flow better. It was also agreed to work with him to realign his drive approach what currently has three culvert pipes. Mr. Vorderkunz wants the City to pull out the existing pipes and he will replace and include a larger culvert pipe. He will tear out the existing concrete sides before the City begins. He also wants the City to clean up the drainage inlet along Hoffmeyer Drive at Grieg Drive. The City Manager agreed to get this done in a timely manner and instructed the Public Works Director on site of what needs to be done. The new speed limit (40 mph) was determined by a study by the Police Department once Greig Drive was completed and passed by the City Council. Phone System The City Manager discussed the phone system issues with the Police Chief and receptionist. All calls received in the absence of the receptionist are deferred to the water utility employees at the front counter. We will continue to look for opportunities to improve customer service regarding the Phone System. Our job in handling the matter is to listen, understand, and then discuss with the customer their concerns in a calm and friendly manner while conducting an open discussion regarding the issues complained of and how they will be responded to in their specific issue. Once we have heard the complaint and understand, we can refer the customer to a supervisor or manager where possible. Possibly creating and maintaining a manner of tracking customer complaints and the resolution. We will do a better job at answering and returning calls within one work day. Vernon Leuschner – Street Quality Testing – Phone System Street Quality Testing The City Manager discussed (phone call) the street conditions of Lux with Mr. Leuschner several days after the Council meeting. The reason the utility cut was not patched is due to the fact that Lux Dr. will be reclaimed in the next two weeks. However, the street crew did go out to Lux and placed a temporary patch on the utility cut and other areas that needed attention. Walker Partners (City Engineer) advised that testing was to be done on all street sections for this year’s projects. The City budget for testing on these projects was limited for engineering and testing services as of May 2015 for the approximately 12 miles of streets that are proposed for reconstruction. There were 30 borings performed in various streets in March 2015 (LFE Project W15‐020, Report dated April 23); and several Proctors along with associated Atterberg Limits and ‐200 Mesh sieves were done during April. While the Proctors and associated testing were on samples from specific streets, density tests were not conducted. The reconstruction plans have been reduced to 2 primary alternatives, both of which include a seal‐coat topping: 1) Use an asphaltic emulsion to stabilize at least 6 inches of existing granular base, whenever at least 8 inches of granular base exists; and 2) Use a fly‐ash/lime stabilizer on 8 inches of existing material whenever clayey soils exist within the material to be stabilized. Ergon has been retained to prepare mix designs for the asphaltic stabilizer. LFE previously conducted mix designs for fly‐ash/lime stabilizer, and conducted limited testing and engineering for some of the streets. The City Engineer feels it's important for the City to move forward to continue to work with Langerman‐Foster (regarding their on‐call materials testing services) to perform field densities, gradations, any strength cylinders, etc. that are needed to show that the means and methods being employed met the full depth emulsion designs (or lime stabilization). It is anticipated that the City will authorize field density tests to be performed on a typical street section and mix design over the next 30 days by Langerman‐Foster to verify current designs. It should be noted that this testing is limited due to financial constraints per council action (i.e. funds were limited to a joint effort between Walker Partners, and Langerman & Foster). Phone System The City Manager discussed the phone system issues with the Police Chief and receptionist. All calls received in the absence of the receptionist are deferred to the water utility employees at the front counter. We will continue to look for opportunities to improve customer service regarding the Phone System. Our job in handling the matter is to listen, understand, and then discuss with the customer their concerns in a calm and friendly manner while conducting an open discussion regarding the issues complained of and how they will be responded to in their specific issue. Once we have heard the complaint and understand, we can refer the customer to a supervisor or manager where possible. Possibly creating and maintaining a manner of tracking customer complaints and the resolution. We will do a better job at answering and returning calls within one work day. Councilmember Requests/Comments Bert Echterling – Follow‐up on citizen comments regarding street quality testing, and phone system (said this was not the first time he’s heard this complaint). Please refer to City Manager response. Rusty Steed, Mayor ProTem – Phone System. Please refer to City Manager response. Warren Johnson – Schedule a Customer Service Workshop. It was recommended by the City Manager that a retreat would be scheduled during the month of September‐October to discuss the customer service issues. Please refer to City Manager response.
