REPORT TO CIVIL SERVICE COMMISSION
SUBJECT
Title
Request to Extend Eligible List for Deputy Fire Marshal I (Job Code 372)

Report
ACTION AND AUTHORITY
The Fire Department is requesting to extend the eligible list for Deputy Fire Marshal I (Job Code 372) pursuant to Civil Service Rule 4.3 (Duration of Lists) which provides that, "Eligible lists shall remain in force for a period of one (1) year.
