Civil Service Commission
The Commission meets on the second Monday of every other month at 4:15 p.m. in Conference Room 15, City Hall, 735 Anacapa Street.
The Civil Service Commission was created in 1926 to hear and determine all matters involving the suspension, removal or dismissal of members of the Fire or Police Departments. Over the years the role of the Board has been expanded by various Charter amendments and Council policies. The last major change was the adoption of the 1967 City Charter which established the Board's current powers and duties as they relate to general personnel rules and regulations and to all classified City employees.
