Civil Service Commission
The Civil Service Commission is responsible for the oversight of the recruitment, selections and placement of uniformed firefighters and sworn police officers below the level of chief.
The commission also investigates in public hearings the suspension, demotion and/or the discharge of a member of the Civil Service at the member's request, to determine whether such action was or was not made for political or religious reasons and was or was not made in good faith for cause.
Further information about the commission and civil service rules is contained in the Bellevue City Code Ch. 3.72 and Civil Service Rules.
The commission is composed of five members appointed by the city manager. The term for all positions on the commission is six years, and expires on May 31 of the last year of the term. A member must be a Bellevue resident during the appointment, and may be appointed to a maximum of two consecutive terms.
