Civil Service Commission

About the Commission

The Civil Service Commission provides by rule for assessment of merit and fitness  for appointment and promotions in City employment. The Commission also handles appeals from disciplinary actions such as transfers, reductions, or removals. Such rules are adopted in the sole discretion of the Civil Service Commission and prevail over, conflicting State of Ohio statutes, rules or regulations.

Currently only full time Police and Fire/EMS Personnel are covered by North Canton civil service provisions.

The Commission consists of three members appointed by the Mayor on a volunteer basis. The Commission meets as needed to address concerns or hold tests.
