Section 19-162 Promotion of a present employee.
Prior to the adoption of Ord. 19677 on 09/17/2007, Section 19-162 read as follows.
While not compulsory,
department heads may
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.
