Mr. Murphy presented proposed legislation, Resolution No. 2012-2, which provides for five (5) additional points given in an original appointment exam to an applicant who has served in the military service, as described in the Ohio R.C. 124.23, and who files a certificate of service or honorable discharge.
 
Discussion continued on the types of certificates that may be filed. Chief Porrello stated that he would do research on this issue, and present the findings at the next Civil Service meeting.
 
The Commission referred to Resolution 91-10, regarding language used for honorable discharges from military service.
 
In answer to Mr. Schmidlin's question, Chief Carroll stated he would like to give firefighter candidates the same extra credit for original appointment.
 
It was moved by Mr. Schmidlin, seconded by Ms. Sweeney that this item be tabled in order to prepare similar legislation for the original appointment exam for firefighters and pending further information and clarification for the terms "certificate of service" and "DD-214" and language explaining a dishonorable discharge.
