Civil Service Board

Duties and Responsibilities

The Civil Service System for the City of Tacoma extends Civil Service protections and coverage to the majority of the City's work force. Powers and duties consist of making revisions to the Civil Service Rules, also known as Personnel Rules, advising City Council and other officials on Civil Service and personnel matters, investigating conditions of employment in Civil Service, conducting appeal hearings on suspensions more than 30 days, demotions, or terminations, and hearing complaints regarding Civil Service rules.

Membership

The Civil Service Board consists of three members elected by the registered voters of the city, one member is elected by classified employees in the City's work force, and one member is appointed by management. Civil Service Board Members are required to live within the city limits and must be a qualified voter during their entire term. The Board is a quasi-judicial body.
