Commissioners:
 
We will now have two vacancies in the Lyndhurst Fire Department. Please accept this letter as my request to commence the steps necessary to conduct examinations for the establishment of eligibility lists for the positions of Captain and Lieutenant in the Lyndhurst Fire Department so the lists can be established as soon as you are practically able to do so.
 
Sincerely,
 
Joseph M. Cicero, Jr
Mayor

c: Chief Carroll"
 
Discuss promotional testing for Lieutenant and Captain in the Lyndhurst Fire Department.
 
Chief Carroll explained that a captain resigned, and previously, a firefighter, which is the reason for the vacancies and the reason for promotional testing. He then recommended that Ohio Fire Chiefs' Association administer the written tests and assessment center for Lieutenant and Captain.
 
In answer to Mr. Schmidlin's question, Chief Carroll stated that those lieutenants eligible to take the captain's test are:
 
Lt. Scott Maynor
Lt. Dave Young
Lt. Ryan Procop
 
He then stated the following firefighters are eligible to take the lieutenant's test:
 
Pat Antonelli
Dan Barnoski Adam Bobinski
Todd Drum
Jeff Fisher
Brian Ford
Tony Iosue
Dan Knoch
Nick Martin
Bob Mormino
Pam Paalman
Jon Pettine
Mike Suster
Mark Tarnowski
Jim Ziska
 
Chief Carroll stated the cost for assessment center for captain would be $4,900; the assessment center for lieutenants would be $5,500 for four (4) to six (6) candidates.
 
Mr. Schmidlin stated that to avoid overtime costs, it would be in the best interest of everyone to commence with the promotional testing as soon as possible.
 
The Commission concurred.
 
Chief Carroll stated the tests for both lieutenant and captain could be conducted in late August. He then recommended the following book lists:
 
BOOK LIST
LIEUTENANT TEST
 
1. Building Construction Related to the Fire Service. IFSTA 3rd edition
2. Fire Officer Handbook of Tactics. Norman, 3rd edition, Fire Engineering
3. From Buddy to Boss. Sargent
4. Fire Department Incident Safety Officer. Dodson, 2nd edition, Thompson/Delmar
5. Introduction to Fire Origin & Cause. 3rd edition, IFSTA
 
BOOK LIST
CAPTAINS TEST
 
1. Fire Inspection Principles & Practice. IAFC/NFPA
2. Introduction to Fire Origin & Cause. 3rd edition, IFSTA
3. Fire Service Personnel Management. 3rd edition, Edwards
4. It's Your Ship - Revised Captain D. Michael Abrshoff, Warner Business Books
5. Strategic and Tactical Considerations on the Fireground. Smith, 3rd edition, Brady
 
Chief Carroll then recommended that there should not be a passing grade for the test for captain, due to the fact that many times there would only be two (2) candidates, and a score below 70% would eliminate one of the candidates, and therefore would not be a competitive test.
 
Review proposed legislation for regional testing of original appointment firefighters
 
It was decided that this item be tabled pending further information.
 
It was moved by Mr. Schmidlin, seconded by Mr. Patete that the meeting be adjourned.
 
The question was put to a voice vote and passed unanimously.
 
Motion carried, meeting adjourned at 8:55 a.m.

Mr. Schmidlin explained that the correspondence from Lt. Traci was read at the Regular Meeting of the Civil Service Commission, held February 14, 2013.
 
Mr. Murphy stated that he had done extensive research on the request to reinstate the seniority of Patrolman Scipione, and referenced Chapter 124.50 of the Ohio Revised Code, which states as follows: "Any person reinstated pursuant to the authority of this paragraph shall not seek credit for seniority earned prior to resignation and reinstatement, and shall not be entitled to reinstatement to a position above the rank of regular firefighter or patrol officer, regardless of the position the person may have held at the time of resignation." He stated that based on that paragraph, the Civil Service Commission does not have the power to grant the request of Lt. Traci.
 
Confirm Special Police Officer candidate, Scott Lillash.
 
It was moved by Mr. Schmidlin, seconded by Ms. Sweeney that pursuant to Section 14 (c) Rule IV, of the Rules and Regulations of the Civil Service Commission, Special Police Officer candidate Scott Lillash has completed requirements set forth in Section 14 (a) and (b) and is hereby certified for appointment as a Special Police Officer, which appointment shall become permanent upon completion of the required training as set forth by the Lyndhurst Police Department.

    In answer to Mr. Schmidlin's question, Chief Carroll stated that all books listed are recommended by the Ohio Fire Chiefs' Association; the books will be purchased by the fire department. He further stated that the current officers in the fire department participated in the choice of books listed.
     
    Mr. Schmidlin expressed his agreement with the idea of a library where the list of books would be readily available. The Commission concurred.
     
    Correspondence from Lt. Jeff Traci.
     
    The following letter was submitted to each commission member:
     
    "January 26, 2012
     
    Members of the Civil Service Commission,
     
    This past November I sent a similar letter to this to Chief Porrello and he gave me the option to forward this to the Civil Service Commission.
     
    I would like to express how impressed I have been with the quality of police work and leadership Ptl. Scipione has demonstrated in the first 2 years since he returned from his short leave due to an illness. Ptl. Scipione returned to LPD after being forced to leave the department due to a medical disability. Ptl. Scipione left LPD in January of 2010 and returned in January of 2011. Upon his return Ptl. Scipione rode with a Field Training Officer for a mere 2 days and was ready to work on his own. I was watching Ptl. Scipione carefully during the first year out of concern that his symptoms may come back and effect his work. Not one time did I notice a single issue with his work. He demonstrated excellent investigative skills and solid police work from the first week he returned. I would rank his follow up investigation on reports in the highest tier of any of our officers. During his first year back he received a Departmental Commendation for his initiative and investigation of stolen cell phones. He responded to a report of stolen cell phones at the Apple store and rather than just take a theft report he began a lengthy investigation which led to several arrests and the recovery of numerous stolen cell phones.
     
    During his first 2 years he went above and beyond with numerous investigations. These included working with outside agencies and with State and Federal task forces. These are things that many officers never do in their career. His leadership has spearheaded many projects around the police department. He recently took it upon himself to organize members of Lyndhurst Police to help raise money for Officer Jason Gresko, a Willoughby PD officer who died in a line of duty car crash. His efforts led to LPD donating 2 baskets to a benefit auction valued at over $1,000 along with $3,182 from a raffle he organized. Ptl. Scipione has no ties to this officer, he just took the lead and ran with it. The most impressive demonstration of his leadership is developing a multi-jurisdictional drug task force. The SPAN cities not only agreed to the task force, but had the confidence in him to allow Ptl. Scipione to be the Commander of the unit.
     
    The unfortunate part about all of Ptl. Scipione's success is that since he left with a medical disability and chose to return when he recovered, he is treated by the department as a new hire with no seniority. He has just returned to standard patrolman pay, will be short 2 weeks of vacation every year for the rest of his career, and is at the bottom of the shift in seniority. He has not let this setback effect his morale in anyway.
     
    My main concern is I think it is an injustice not to count his prior almost 10 years of service with the City of Lyndhurst when he takes a promotional exam. Ptl. Scipione's situation is unique and should be treated different than an officer bringing experience from another city. We have hired several officers who have had several years of experience at another department and not one of them progressed in nearly the same way as Ptl. Scipione did on his return. Those officers took 6 months or more to be allowed to be on their own and then slowly progressed from there. Ptl. Scipione returned with 2 days of training and then continued without missing a beat from his first 10 year stretch of service. He has never acted like a new hire and I don't feel we should continue to treat him as a new hire.
     
    I would recommend that the Civil Service Commission seriously consider counting Ptl. Scipione's entire time of employment with City of Lyndhurst to calculate his seniority for any promotional exams. He is giving us his best and I think he should be given the credit he deserves.
     
    Respectfully,
     
    Lt. Jeff Traci
     
    cc: Mayor Cicero"
     
    Mr. Schmidlin stated that although he may agree with Lt. Traci, this letter would require a legal opinion.
     
    Mr. Murphy stated that he has read the letter signed by Lt. Traci and Rule IX, Section 5, which states ". . .and upon reinstatement such firefighter or police officer shall not receive credit for seniority earned prior to resignation and reinstatement and shall not be entitled to reinstatement to a position above the rank of firefighter or police officer, as the case may be, regardless of the position held at the time of resignation." He further stated that Mr. Scipione, at the time of reinstatement, agreed to this rule in a signed letter dated December 20, 2010.
     
    Lt. Traci stated that it is his opinion that Patrolman Scipione, since his reinstatement, has acted like a ten year veteran, and feels as his supervisor, that it is in the best interest of the department that his seniority be reinstated. He further stated that the department treats Patrolman Scipione as a leader, and not a new hire.
     
    In answer to Mr. Murphy's question, Lt. Traci stated he is not speaking on Patrolman Scipione's behalf, but just wanted to come forward and express his thoughts.
     
    Mr. Schmidlin thanked Lt. Traci for his request, and stated that although he and the other commissioners may agree with the request, state and local rules must be followed. He asked that Lt. Traci convey to Patrolman Scipione their gratitude for the years of service he has put into the department.
     
    Mr. Patete stated that he feels Lt. Scipione has proven to be an asset to the department, and that the Rule IX, Section 5 doesn't seem fair; he shouldn't be kicked when he is down.
     
    Mr. Murphy explained that the consideration of Patrolman Scipione's reinstatement was that he was permitted to come back, bypassing original appointment tests. He further stated that he will review the Civil Service Rules and outline options for the Commission's review.
     
    Mr. Schmidlin stated that he would like to know the history of Rule IX, Section 5. He further stated that it must exist for a reason.
     
    It was moved by Mr. Schmidlin, seconded by Ms. Sweeney that the meeting be adjourned.
     
    The question was put to a voice vote and passed unanimously.
     
    Motion carried, meeting adjourned at 9:00 a.m.
