You are welcome to attend the Civil Service Commission meetings in which any one or more of these matters may be discussed. Meetings are typically held on a monthly basis in the Hamilton City Council Chambers.
To supervise the affairs of the civil service, the Charter establishes a Commission of three Hamilton residents. Members of this Commission are appointed, two by City Council members and one by the Board of Education of the Hamilton City School District. Members serve without compensation. Citizens of Hamilton may apply for membership (PDF) on the Civil Service Commission.
The Hamilton City Charter places most of the positions in the city government within the classified civil service. Basic merit principles are set forth in the Charter and are supplemented by rules and regulations developed by the Civil Service Commission. These provisions govern the conduct of examinations, appointments, transfers, reinstatement, disciplinary actions, appeals and other related matters.
