Beachwood City Charter Amendment to appear on November Ballot

A Beachwood City Charter Amendment Issue will appear on the November 7th ballot.

The current Charter provision regarding the Civil Service Commission, which is Article VI, Section 3, contains most of the rules for the examination, appointment, and promotion of the classified civil service. The classified civil service is made of up of all police officers in the Police Department below the rank of Chief and all fire fighters in the Fire Department below the ranks of Chief and Deputy Chief.

The proposed Amendment to the Charter would eliminate those rules from the Charter and allow the Civil Service Commission to implement the rules with Council approval without the necessity for the residents to vote on such rule changes. The Civil Service Commission consists of three members who are Beachwood residents, appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by Council to serve six-year terms. Currently, the Civil Service Commission members are Brian Burke, Chairman; Robert Cohen; and David Keilin.

If passed, the Charter Amendment would be effective upon the certification of the election results by the Board of Elections.
