Members are appointed by the Mayor. Council confirmation is not required.
The Commission prescribes, amends, and enforces rules for the classification of positions in the civil service of the city, city schools, and city health districts. The rules apply to appointments, promotions, removals, transfers, layoffs, suspensions, reductions, and reinstatements of all the above positions. The Commission also creates and enforces rules to ensure the standardization of these positions and maintain efficiency in them. To learn about the official Civil Service Rules click here.
