Civil Service Commission
Commission Duties
The Civil Service Commission comprises five members. Each member serves a term of four years. As established by the City Charter, the Civil Service Commission makes recommendations to the council and the city manager and conducts investigations concerning the administration of personnel in the classified service.

The commission reviews and recommends changes to the civil service rules and appoints members to the City Council Salary Setting Commission. The commission may also act as an appellate body for certain personnel decisions affecting City employees.

This commission is advisory to the City Council regarding civil service rules, as well as to the city manager and any other appointive power regarding personnel administrative matters. Appeals to decisions made by the commission concerning employee discipline and dismissal must be made through the court system.

The commission meets the first Thursday of each month at 4:00 p.m., in City Hall Room W120. In addition to the regular meetings, commission members attend study sessions, closed hearings, and meetings with the city attorney and staff. Commissioners average 16-20 hours per month on commission business.
