Public Works Maintenance Worker I: This is the entry level class in the Public Works Maintenance Worker class series. Positions in this class normally perform most of the duties required of the II level, but are not expected to function at the same skill level and normally exercise less discretion and judgment in matters related to work procedures and methods. Work is usually supervised while in progress and fits a pattern which has been established and explained before work is started. Generally, changes in work procedures are explained in advance as they arise. Under the flexible staffing concept, positions assigned to the Public Works Maintenance Worker I level may reasonably expect to progress to the Public Works Maintenance Worker II level with training, experience, and satisfactory job performance.
Public Works Maintenance Worker II: This is the journey level in the class series. Positions in this class are flexibly staffed and are normally filled by advancement from the Public Works Maintenance Worker I class, or when filled from the outside, require prior experience in the construction and maintenance of streets, sewers, and public works related facilities. Appointment to the higher class requires that the employee be performing substantially the full range of duties for the class and meet the qualification standards for the class, including the proven ability to assume full stand-by program responsibility. All positions assigned to this class require the ability to work independently exercising judgment and initiative. Duties will normally require the ability to operate the full range of mechanical equipment related to a specific assignment.
