The fundamental reason this classification exists is to supervise work crews involved in skilled or semi-skilled maintenance and repair work; positions are located in multiple City departments. The essential functions are: plans assignments; directs activities of the crew; performs maintenance, repair, and utility work tasks; documents activities on projects; and supervises the work crew. The distinguishing characteristic of this classification is the responsibility for supervising work crews engaged in manual semi-skilled to skilled labor performing building and grounds maintenance and repair work. A work crew is typically composed of an Equipment Operator and two to five Service Maintenance Workers. (The number of crew members varies depending on location as well as the time of the year and special events occurring.) Incumbents are responsible for planning and carrying out assignments with considerable independence and have some latitude in developing procedures and methods. Incumbents physically engage in work tasks when necessary. Position incumbents receive work assignments and are responsible for prioritizing those 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. Supervision is received from various classifications, dependent upon the incumbents' assigned locations.
