WHEREAS, the Civil Service Board of the City of Jasper was created by the Alabama Legislature on March  9, 1965 providing Act No. 113; and,


WHEREAS, Section 9 of the Civil Service Act creating the Civil Service Board of the City of Jasper grants the Civil Service Board the power to make rules and regulations governing examinations, eligible registers, appointments, transfers, salaries, promotions, demotions, annual and sick leave, and such other matters as may be necessary to accomplish the purposes of the Act; and,


WHEREAS, Section 9 of the Act creating the Jasper Civil Service Board states: “A rule or regulation may be made effective only after a public hearing is held on the proposal thereof and after a certified copy thereof has been filed with the City Clerk.”; and,


WHEREAS, the Civil Service Board desires to implement a rule consistent with its duties under the Act.


NOW THEREFORE, the Civil Service Board will hold a public hearing on the following proposed rule change:


1. It is the position of the Jasper Civil Service Board and the City of Jasper that all employees of the City of Jasper should meet a satisfactory background check as a requirement of employment with the City of Jasper. All candidates for a position with the City of Jasper who fail to meet the qualifications and a  satisfactory check may be excluded or removed from the eligible register for such failure. Each application shall contain the following language.


I understand that any condition offer, test or other benefit of employment is strictly contingent upon the satisfactory completion of all requirements of the application and a background check which will be conducted by the City of Jasper and/or Department of the City to which I am applying for employment.


2. No provision of this Rule amends Section 11 of the Act but merely provides for something which is not prohibited therein and which is specifically authorized by Section 9 of the Act. The proposed Rule adoption is attached hereto and will be voted on for approval by the Civil Service Board at a public hearing on the 6th day of November 2019 at 9 am o’clock in the Board hearing room at Jasper City Hall.


3. The new rule shall be added to the Rules of the Jasper Civil Service Board and be known as Rule No. 15.


Dr. Marcus O’Mary, Chairman
