There is hereby established a Civil Service Commission which is charged with the duty of providing qualified persons for appointment to the service of the City and County.
The Commission shall consist of five members appointed by the Mayor, pursuant to Section 3.100, for six-year terms. Not less than two members of the Commission shall be women.
The persons so appointed shall, before taking office, make under oath and file in the office of the County Clerk the following declaration: “I am opposed to appointments to the public service as a reward for political activity and will execute the office of Civil Service Commissioner in the spirit of this declaration.”
A commissioner may be removed only upon charges preferred in the same manner as in this Charter provided for elective officers.
The regular meetings of the Commission shall be open to the public and held at such a time as will give the general public and employees of the City and County adequate time within which to appear before the Commission after the regular daily working hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Such person or persons shall be given an opportunity to be heard by the Commission before final action is taken in any case involving such person or persons.
