The Civil Service Commission consists of 5 members, 1 appointed by each council member.
This commission hears appeals of any classified city employee who is subject to change in classification, disciplinary action, or who is suspended, demoted, or removed from service. The commission then reports its findings to the City Council.
There is no provision in the City’s Municipal Code that prevents a member from serving on multiple City committees or commissions. However, the City’s custom and practice is to avoid allowing a member to serve on multiple boards at the same time.
Elected officials are not permitted to serve on the Civil Service Commission.
