The City of Redmond has an opening on the Civil Service Commission for anyone who currently resides in Redmond city limits and has lived in Redmond for a minimum of three years. Applicants must be registered U.S. citizens as well. The city is committed to having a commission that reflects the diversity of the community and encourages applications from all residents with interest in the future of Redmond.

The Civil Service Commission is responsible for the hiring and promotional examinations for all regular status Public Safety positions. Additionally, it acts as an appeal board for fire and police grievances. Desirable qualities of a commissioner include a strong interest in public safety, an ability to review the meeting materials in advance, and skills in communicating with others. Civil Service Commissioners are typically appointed to six-year terms.

The three-member commission meets with city staff and members of the public at 4:30 p.m. on the third Wednesday of every month. Occasionally, there may be a need for a special meeting, to be scheduled at the availability of the Civil Service Commissioners.

To learn more about the commission or to apply, visit http://www.redmond.gov/Government/BoardsCommissions/, click on “Community Service Application” and submit a completed online application by the preferred date of Feb. 5. The position will remain open until filled.
