Civil Service jobs statewide could be affected by changes that could possibly be made soon within its 70 year old system. The Civil Service Review Commission held a public meeting today at the Muskingum County Visitor’s Center where the public was given the chance to voice their opinions on issues being discussed. A series of hearings have been held in Canton, Dayton, and Columbus as the commission continues building recommendations on improvements for the State Civil Service System. The Commission has spent the last year reviewing Ohio’s Civil Service System, which has remained largely unchanged since the 1930’s when it was originated. There is a wide array of those in favor of some proposed changes and those who are not. The Civil Service has reviewed issues such as layoffs, discipline, classifications, compensation, promotions, and appeals. There are two more scheduled in Columbus and one in Findlay Ohio. A final report on the system will be drafted by the end of December.
