City personnel committee talks about safety shoes

onnel and legislative committee met Wednesday to discuss employee safety shoes reimbursement.
Public Works Director Gary Schreifels explained the city requires employees to have steel-toed boots as part of their safety equipment. The city currently reimburses employees a maximum of $135 for the purchase of safety shoes.
Schreifels said shoes actually range between $170 and $200, so employees are paying out of pocket for something the city requires. He recommended removing the dollar amount and reimbursing employees for one pair of shoes per year.
Council Member Allen Robeck said he’d like to see a $250 cap. Council Member John Schrupp agreed, and the committee voted in favor of the new amount.
Schrupp also asked about the lifeguard uniform required at the Glencoe Aquatic Center. City Administrator Markā€ˆLarson said he’d look into it.
