TD Council Receives Public Works Gap Analysis

The Dalles City Council accepted a “gap analysis” of the municipal public works department that contains recommendations to increase efficiency in the department.     Rob Moody of the consulting firm TKW, which did the report, emphasized the analysis found a lot going on right within the department, noting the report focuses more on how things are done and having one team in public works moving in one direction rather than divisional silos working independently.  Mayor Steve Lawrence says the hope is to increase efficiency.  Moody said it would probably take 12 months to implement changes in the department, but also pointed out culture change does not occur quickly but develops over a period of time.  He also said he felt there was positive energy around this effort from those involved in the public works department.
