Except when determined operationally inefficient by the City Manager, all full-time, non-managerial vacancies within the City will be posted on bulletin boards for five (5) working days.
Secs. 2-208.02 Application
Employees who wish to be considered for a vacancy must apply by completing a Promotional Request Form and turning it into HR during the posting period. While selection is being made, the Department Head may utilize any employee or other person he wishes to perform the work.
Secs. 2-208.03 Pool of Qualified Applicants
The Human Resources Director and, when appropriate, in coordination with the Department Head, will determine which of the employees, if any, who apply for the job meet the minimum qualifications for the job.
Secs. 2-208.05 No Sufficiently Qualified Applicants
If after completing the interview and evaluation process, the Human Resources Director and Department Head determine that none of the applicants who meet the minimum qualifications for the job are sufficiently qualified for the job, the City Manager, or his designee, may fill the position in any manner he wishes.
(a) A promoted employee will serve a minimum six (6) month probationary period or a maximum one (1) year as designated by the Department Head. If the promoted employee does not successfully complete the probationary period, the employee may be returned to the position from which he was promoted with the approval of the Department Head only if a vacancy exists. If the former position is filled, reasonable effort will be made to place the employee in a comparable position. However, if a vacancy does not exist and if it is impractical to create a new position, the employee will be released.
(b) Upon approval of the City Manager, a portion of the promotion probation period may be waived if the employee's performance is satisfactory.
