Civil Service Commission

Functions, responsibilities, and upcoming meetings of the Civil Service Commission

The Civil Service Commission is the policy making body for the merit system of the City of St. Louis. Article XVIII of the City Charter vests the Commission with responsibility for making rules and adjudicating appeals consistent with the provisions of Article XVIII. The Commission's duties are quasi-judicial, as well as quasi-legislative in nature. The Civil Service Commission has the authority to adjudicate appeals from permanent City employees who believe they have been unfairly disciplined. Hearing Officers assist the Commission by conducting the appeals scheduled for formal hearing and the Commission reviews the proceedings of these hearings and renders a decision. 

Commission Secretary

The Director of Personnel is the Secretary of the Civil Service Commission and is responsible for keeping minutes and records; conducting investigations and preparing reports for the Commission in matters under its consideration; and in all other proper ways facilitating the actions and proceedings for the Commission.
