City manager gets high marks in 2013 evaluation

The La Grande City Council and city staff gave City Manager Robert Strope a thumbs up on his 2013 evaluation.

City councilors met Monday night to go over the evaluations, which ranked the city manager on various aspects of the job between one and five, with five being a superior level of performance, three being fully competent and one meaning performance failed to meet expectations. The overall assessment from the councilors gave Strope a 3.7. The lowest marks, at 3.4, on the councilors' evaluation were under economic development and community relations.

Economic development was a much-discussed topic during January's council retreat and is a focus for the city. In the city council evaluation, councilors noted that "Robert has the ability to be a beacon of leadership in this area." 

During Monday night's work session the council also discussed the evaluation based on the responses of seven department directors, who overall rated Strope 4.5 for the 2013 calendar year.

His lowest mark on that evaluation, at 3.57, was under imagination.

"I don't see a lot of ingenuity and drive in trying to streamline processes or developing efficiencies. Much of this is regulated outside of his control; however, there are some area internally that could be more efficient," one director wrote in the comments.

Strope said at the meeting that he appreciates candid comments and that there is always room for improvement. He added that he has some concerns about the efficiencies remark and would like to work on that.

"What I'm looking for is constructive feedback," he said.
