Board conducts first self-evaluation.

By Arin McKenna

The Board of Public Utilities gave itself high marks on its first self-evaluation during a special meeting on Friday. A yearly self-evaluation is part of the new Policies and Procedures Manual adopted on May 21 of this year.

Most of the questions were routine checks, such as, “Is there an annual board calendar?” or “Do all board members participate in a formal orientation?”

On a scale of one to five, the lowest score was a three on the question of “Does the board give clear directions to management on the mission and goals of the organization?”

The board felt that the mission and goals were too driven by Department of Public Utilities staff, and that the board itself should have more discussion regarding those and provide more direction to the department.

“Our responsibility is to set direction,” Board Chair Timothy Neal said. “I don’t think we have talked among ourselves about how we want the department to move… I think we should have a consensus about where we want to move.”

DPU Manager Tim Glasco pointed out that the missions and goals developed during the department’s annual strategic planning session “reflect discussions and directions from previous boards, which every board subsequent has had opportunities to change, modify.”
