Administrative Services staff short on fuel and supplies
In its fourth quarter performance report, the Department of Administrative Services cited problems faced by staff overseeing government housing properties. The department says its biggest impediment is the delay in getting much needed gasoline and other supplies in a timely manner in order to continue “our grounds keeping.”
“There have been a few occasions when the employees ended up purchasing fuel and supplies for the grounds keeping equipment in order to keep the work running efficiently,” the report says.
It also says that they are “in dire need of furniture, building materials and supplies to carry out our basic repairs”, adding that the majority of the units have furniture that needs replaced.
Additionally, there is a need to furnish the newly renovated/repaired units, while the warehouse is “full of broken and/or damaged furniture.”
