RESOLUTION APPROVING PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO THE SPECIFICATIONS FOR THE CIVIL SERVICE CLASSIFICATION OF FIREFIGHTER.

BY COUNCILOR GILBERT:

     RESOLVED, that the proposed amendments to the specifications for the civil service classification of firefighter, which were approved by the civil service board on August 14, 2007, and which are filed with the city clerk as Public Document No. _______________, are approved.

     RESOLVED FURTHER, that this classification shall remain subject to the city’s collective bargaining agreement with its fire unit employees and compensated at the Pay Range 226.


STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:  The firefighter job description was changed to reflect a new requirement for the candidate physical abilities test (CPAT) developed by the International Association of Fire Fighters and the International Association of Fire Chiefs. This will be used in place of the physical abilities testing performed in the past. There is no change in the rate of pay.
