Civil Service Commission

The Civil Service Commission is the appeal board for Washington County Employees. Employees may appeal to the Civil Service Commission adverse personnel management decisions such as appointments, disciplinary actions and classification allocations.

The Civil Service Commission was established pursuant to the Civil Service Act adopted by the citizens of Washington County. Membership duties and responsibilities of the Commission are defined in Washington County’s Personnel Rules and Regulations. The Commission is also the advisory body to the County’s Affirmative Action program.

This five-member Commission is comprised of volunteers appointed by the County Board of Commissioners for a two year term. Members may serve more than one consecutive terms. Serving on an appointed board or commission is a great way for residents to learn more about how local government works.
