Member Information

The Board of Supervisors appoints five citizens to serve as members of the Commission. Members cannot be a Supervisor, officer or employee of the County. Members receive $100 for each meeting they attend; with a maximum limit for 24 meetings per County fiscal year. Travel and other official expenditures necessitated by their official duties shall be approved by the Director.

Members may be removed from the Commission with a majority vote of the Board of Supervisors. The Board must state the reason for removal in writing and allow an opportunity for a public hearing. Two members are selected by the Commissioners to serve as Chairperson and Vice Chairperson each calendar year.

About the Commission

The Civil Service Commission is a nonpartisan public body responsible for policy direction and oversight of a merit system. This system is used for the selection, promotion, and retention of civil service employees in Placer County service, as governed by the County Charter. The Commission makes final decisions on appeals involving alleged improper action or the denial of any rights provided by the County Code and Civil Service Rules. This includes examination and selection procedures, appeals relating to the classification plan, and/or appeals from disciplinary actions.

Requests received within five business days will be accommodated only if time permits.
