  • Civil Service Commission:  The Civil Service Commission meets as needed. It has three members, each with 4-year terms. The CSC ensures fair and just municipal employment; ensures that employees are selected and promoted on the basis of merit; serves as a board of review to the Human Resources Department and City Council concerning general personnel policies, upon request; serves as a board of hearing concerning employee grievances with their decision being final and binding.
  • Public Facilities Authority:  The Public Facilities Authority meets to issue bonds and once the bonds have been issued does not meet again.
