If the department head is unable or unwilling to fill a vacancy from a certified list of
eligible candidates, the department head shall
request that a promotional examination consisting
of one or more formal procedures listed in section 19-161, be held to determine more formally
the best-qualified present employees who may be contenders for a position. However, for each
vacancy, the department head may promote a permanent present city employee in the department
who meets the following considerations:
(1) Meets the minimum qualifications for the classification
as shown in the current
announcement for that position.
(2) Is a current paid employee with at least a satisfactory
performance work record; and has
been certified as eligible for promotion by the human resources department.
(3) Ranks as one of the certified candidates if a promotional
examination is given.
(4) Has requested promotion into the vacancy in question.
(b) Qualified individuals requesting interdepartmental promotions must compete
candidates unless the proposed promotion meets the full approval of both department heads and
the director, and is in conformity with the city's EEO affirmative action program. The human
resources department shall keep a list of the city employees who have requested promotion in
response to a formal announcement and shall certify the names of those individuals qualified for
and interested in the vacancy in question if so requested by the department head.
