Motion carried.
 
Review and amend firefighter application for original appointment.
 
Mr. Schmidlin stated that the application used now is extensive, and is up for discussion now, to find if the application can be shortened for registering for the test, then possibly the top ten or twenty people would fill out the extensive application (application and background information form). He also suggested that the application be filled out, paid and submitted on line.
 
Chief Carroll suggested that the application be filled out on line, printed then submitted in person because the rules say that applications must be submitted in person, and because a thumb print of the applicant and an application fee is taken upon submittal of the application. He also stated that he would discuss the entire application with Detective Alexander, to find out what exactly is needed, prior to the next meeting.
 
A sample draft original appointment application will be forwarded to the commissioners for review prior to the next meeting.
 
Review rules of the Civil Service Commission
 
Mr. Schmidlin explained that there are some inconsistencies in the rules of the Civil Service Commission. He recommended that the members of the Commission and the Law Director review the rules and amend if necessary.
 
It was recommended that the Secretary distribute a current copy of the rules, along with any resolutions passed after June 28, 2011, to each member to review.
 
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 8:50 a.m.
