Motion carried.
 
Revisit extending the Eligibility List for Chief in the Fire Department (Originally established November 3, 2010).
 
Mr. Schmidlin explained that this item was on the agenda last month, and the eligibility list for chief was extended for one year. However, after further discussion, it was moved by Mr. Schmidlin, seconded by Ms. Sweeney that the eligibility list for chief, established November 3, 2010, be extended until February, 2013.
 
The question was put to a voice vote and passed unanimously.
 
Motion carried.
 
The following two agenda items were discussed as one.
 
Discuss adding military credit for original appointment and review proposed Resolution 2012-2.
 
Discussion continued on whether more points should be given to a candidate who was in active combat, and less to a candidate who was stationed somewhere in the United States. Further discussion was held on the amount of points a candidate should receive with an honorable discharge. Further discussed was candidates who served in the National Guard or Coast Guard, whether they are eligible for the military credit.
 
Chief Porrello stated that if points are given or not, the interview process will look favorably upon a candidate who has served their country honorably.
 
In answer to the secretary's question, Chief Porrello stated that the candidate would get the maximum points allowed for one honorable discharge. If the candidate served in the military and the Coast Guard for example, that candidate would only receive credit for one honorable discharge.
 
It was moved by Mr. Schmidlin, seconded by Ms. Sweeney that the language in proposed Resolution 2012-2 read that three (3) points be awarded for military credit to a candidate upon submission of an honorable discharge or a DD-214.
 
The question was put to a voice vote and passed unanimously.
 
Motion carried.
