Welcome to our organization, The Town of Silver City! This manual has been developed to help you understand the Town's personnel policies.
Our Town Government is a Council-Manager form of government. This means that a five-member, locally elected Board headed by the Mayor is responsible for setting policies, passing laws, and approving the budgets and plans which guide our actions. The Town Manager is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Town, carrying out the laws and policies established by the Council, and supervising all Town employees. The Manager has appointed several Department Heads to oversee the actual operation of the various departments, and these Chiefs and Directors are the people primarily responsible for providing services to the public.
You, the employee, are the most important ingredient in our organization, and we are committed to your success. Management is tolerant of honest mistakes. We will provide you with a salary, benefits, and the resources to do your job. We must ensure that our business of serving the public is successful. With that in mind, the following are our Town values:
A. HONESTY. We don't lie, cheat, steal or otherwise break the law.
B. SAFETY. We do things safely. We do not only provide for the health, safety and welfare of the citizens, but we care for our own.
C. COURTESY. We are ladies and gentlemen serving ladies and gentlemen.
D. PRODUCTIVITY. We are paid to do a job. That's effectiveness. We will accomplish our tasks.
E. EFFICIENCY. We do our jobs efficiently. We are responsible for the fiscal health of the Town.
The acronym H-SCOPE stands for Honesty, Safety, Courtesy, Productivity, Efficiency.
Your supervisors and the Town administration look forward to working with you. We hope you will enjoy your career with the Town of Silver City.
