San Angelo is a civil service city. This means certified firefighters and sworn police officers are civil service employees. Civil service employees are governed by Local Government Code 143. The system of functioning under this law is delegated to the Civil Service Commission. Day-to-day civil service operations are under the Civil Service Director, which in San Angelo is the Human Resources Director.
The Civil Service Commission is a three-member board of citizens appointed by the City Manager. The commission is responsible for writing and maintaining the San Angelo civil service rules and regulations. The commission's principle role is to hear appeals on disciplinary actions, terminations or promotional examinations, with the focus being on whether civil service rules and regulations are being properly obeyed.
The commission meets on an as-needed, called basis. Agendas are posted on this website and at City Hall, 72 W. College Ave.
Members serve a three-year term, with no term limitations.
Anyone interested in serving on the commission should contact the City Clerk's office on the second floor of City Hall or call 325-657-4405 for more information. For additional board information, contact Civil Service Director Veronica Sanchez at 325-657-4221.
