Panel nominates civil service commissioners

Tuesday, May 5, 2015 by Tyler Whitson

Following three hours of interviews, the City Council Audit and Finance Committee recommended unanimously Monday that Council appoint Michael Murphy and Lottie Dailey to fill two positions on the Municipal Civil Services Commission that expire Saturday. The commission’s outgoing members are Chair Kimberlee Kovach and Commissioner Kevin Russell. The committee also unanimously supported the commission’s April 27 recommendation that Council select current Commissioner Pamela Lancaster to take over as chair. If appointed by Council at its May 14 meeting, Murphy and Dailey would serve three-year terms. Created by voters through a City Charter amendment in the November 2012 election, the five-member commission hears appeals and makes binding decisions relating to disciplinary action for city municipal civil service employees who are not subject to state civil service laws.
