This is an interesting idea advanced at a time when the City is moving to create a more elaborate personnel department in addition to it's Civil Service Commission.
Last year's involvement by the Commission or its agents in the election brought the obscure body into focus, but the WDT advances the notion of the City's civil service and hiring lists be handled by the Jefferson County personnel office.
They currently do that for other local governments. The current set up has consciencious Commission members but it is very much a function of the Third Floor, even sharing legal counsel.
Change deserves consideration.
