Performance Improvement Summary

The Department of Public Works and Assets has seen incremental improvement to important metrics since the start of LouieStat in 2012. Hours not worked has seen a step decrease of non-worked hours of approximately 6%.  Hours lost due to work related injury/illness have declined from a high point of nearly 1,900 hours a month to a steady rate of approximately 250 per month, and their lost time injury rate has been cut nearly in half. This means more people on the ground to help and assist citizens when they need it the most.

Public Works also works hard to keep our city’s infrastructure updated and safe for citizens. They have decreased the percentage of linear feet of sidewalks identified for repair but still awaiting action by 48% over the last three years, targeting the sidewalks in our community that were reported for repair before 2013.
