The Civil Service Merit Board has oversight for the operation of the
city's personnel program to ensure that the city adheres to the merit
system principles and practices. The CSMB also hears appeals relative
to any personnel action which the employee considers adverse to his
or her position. This includes actions such as: suspensions, demotions,
termination and other disciplinary action. The CSMB also provides
for a grievance procedure and for equal employment opportunities to
all employees and applicants for employment. The Civil Service Department
also administers the pay and classification plan of the City and coordinates
the training programs.
The CSMB meets as needed on the second Wednesday of each month in
the City County Building. Individuals wishing to place items on the
CSMB's agenda must submit a written request through the board's executive
secretary/director by the first Wednesday of each month or one week
prior to the CSMB meeting.
