The fundamental reason this classification exists is to supervise work crews engaged in manual and semi-skilled labor performing ball field maintenance tasks in the City of Montgomery. The major work duties include planning for an assignment, directing activities on a work site, documenting project activities, and supervising a work crew. Incumbents work under general direction. Incumbents are generally in charge of the crew, plan and carry out assignments with considerable independence, and have some latitude in developing procedures and methods. Assignments are received at the beginning of the shift and the foreman typically prioritizes the assignments. Supervisors are contacted for guidance in cases of unexpected occurrences or unanticipated situations. Errors made during the performance of tasks can result in safety hazards to the general public and the work crew. The Labor Foreman II (Ball Fields) reports directly to the Assistant Athletics Superintendent.
