Proposed Amendment To Civil Service Rules

Thursday, June 12, 2014 5:00 PM

PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO CIVIL SERVICE RULES

Review of proposed amendments to the current City of Lakewood Civil Service Rules and Regulations

Copies of the latest revision to the proposed amendments was provided to the commission members at the meeting. Mr. Gibbons indicated that the commission members would need more time to review the proposed amendments. Mrs. Mladek asked that the commission consider the matter of the age limitation for Firefighter original appointment in anticipation of city council approval of Ordinance 25-14 on June 16, 2014 in order to get the rule amended and begin to schedule an examination. Proposed amendments were quickly reviewed so the commission members would have an understanding for a more lengthy review. 

Motion by Mr. Gibbons second by Mr. Dever to approve the amendment of section 303 (B)(3) of the City of Lakewood Civil Service Rules to change the current maximum age of 31 to the age of 41 for original appointment to the position of Firefighter/Paramedic conditioned upon the approval of Ordinance 25-14 by city council.
