An ordinance passed Monday night by the City Council takes this power away from the mayor and puts it into the hands of an appointive City Civil Service commission. There was no "malice aforethought" in the council action. City Attorney Walter E. Curnutt had told the council it really had no choice but to pass the ordinance. A 1937 state law requires a civil service commission for third- class cities with police forces of two or more men. Curnutt summarized the commission operation for the council and re-summarized it for Councilman Roy Peterson who came in late from a Scout meeting. The commission of three residents is appointive by the mayor, makes its own rules and employs an examiner to test applicants for police Jobs and applicants for pro- motions. All hirings, pro- motions and firings are by the commission direction. The commission concerns Itself on- ly with police, having nothing to do with any other city em- ploys. Incumbents are "in" so far u the state law is concerned. They don't have to take any exLminat/ons to hold their Jobs and can be removed only for ising standard of cause.
