Please accept this letter as my request to commence the steps necessary to conduct an examination for the establishment of an original appointment eligibility list for patrolman in the City of Lyndhurst so that the list can be established and certified as soon as you are practically able to do so.

and
 
"January 10, 2012
 
Lyndhurst Civil Service Commission
5301 Mayfield Road
Lyndhurst OH 44124
 
Commissioners:
 
This is to advise that the Lyndhurst Police Department will have positions available for two patrolmen.
 
Therefore, I am hereby notifying you of the positions to be filled and requesting that you certify to me the names and addresses of individuals from the original appointment Eligibility List for the Lyndhurst Police Department.
 
I would appreciate receiving the requested list as soon as possible. Thank you for your assistance and cooperation.
 
Sincerely,
 
Joseph M. Cicero, Jr.
Mayor
 
JMC:cjw
 
c: Chief Porrello"
 
Mr. Schmidlin explained that there is a need for a total of three patrolmen, due to the resignation of two patrolmen. He further stated that the current list expires March 18, 2012.
 
Due to the hardship the department is facing, Chief Porrello recommended hiring two patrolmen from the existing list, and hiring one from the new list, once established. He further explained that he is not concerned at the number the list is at; he is more concerned with the test scores of the candidates, which are still high. He further stated that a candidate's high ranking may be due to a lot of test taking as well. He then recommended a review of the actual written test to determine if there is room for improvement.
 
It was moved by Mr. Schmidlin, seconded by Ms. Sweeney that a list of twelve candidate names be created to hire two for original appointment in the police department.
 
The question was put to a voice vote and passed unanimously.
 
Motion carried.
 
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 9:30 a.m.
