The City of Plymouth Human Resources Manager, Jen Klingerman appeared before the Plymouth City Council Monday evening to discuss the semi-skilled 2022 job description for the Cemetery Department. 

Working with Mike Collins Department head of the Oak Hill Cemetery to update the summer semi-skilled job description, Klingerman said there were only a few minor changes.  The first change is the work schedule hours.  Originally it said the workday ended at 3 P.M. but it really is 3:30. The second change come at the request of the department head who said most of his regular summer help isn’t returning.  Collins asked to modify the age requirement to include 16 years with a driver’s license and older.  The final change was that the job description said regularly works evenings and they proposed changing it to say occasionally works evenings.

Councilman Jeff Houin questioned opening up the positions to minors and the impact it could have on the city’s insurance.

Klingerman said the Cemetery is requiring the minors to have a driver’s license for insurance purposes.  There isn’t any impact to the city’s insurance because that is the same requirements, they use for the park’s summer help. 

The Plymouth Board of Public Works and Safety approved the changes to the job description for semi-skilled laborers at the Cemetery.
