Civil Service Commission

Nearly 70% of the Village’s workforce is initially hired through the Civil Service process. The Civil Service Commission is responsible for testing and appointing qualified candidates for the positions of Police Officer, Firefighter / Paramedic, and Maintenance Worker I. The Commission is also responsible for the promotional process for Police Sergeants, Fire Lieutenants, and Fire Captains, including the testing and selection processes. The Civil Service Rules and Regulations describe the testing processes for entry level and promotional positions in Police, Fire, and Public Works. The Commission may also conduct disciplinary hearings not otherwise subject to the procedures of a collective bargaining agreement.

The three member board is appointed by the Mayor, subject to approval by the Village Board. Commissioners serve three year terms on a staggered basis.
