on friday 15 april 2011, rep. roy filed his HB 581 which seeks to make some pretty sweeping changes to the way the alexandria civil service commission will conduct its business.

HB 581 the seven page house bill, will, if approved, amongst a host of things, adds employes scheduled to work less than 32 hours per week to civil service. makes changes to the selection process and the selection and role of its legal counsel.

says that civil service directors "shall possess, at a minimum, a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university. the requirement that the civil service director possess a bachelor's degree shall be mandatory and shall not be waived or substituted. the civil service director shall also possess experience in human resources or personnel administration." and sets job performance evaluations.

must see tv will be the committee hearing testimony on HB 581. it will provide lots more clues to whats going on.
another factor in play is recent city council action in a looming third circuit appeal court opinion
