The Civil Service Commission is responsible for administration of civil service
laws and procedures for all political subdivisions and school districts in Rensselaer
County, Hudson Valley Community College and the East Greenbush Community library,
exclusive of the cities of Troy and Rensselaer.
The objectives of the Commission are the recruitment, development and retention
of a proficient work force and the efficient and effective serving of Rensselaer
County Government and the Civic Divisions under the jurisdiction of the Commission.
In order to provide for the employment of competent personnel to carry on the
necessary operations of government, the commission directs its efforts toward
the recruitment of graduates of high schools, technical institutions and colleges
and universities. In conjunction with this, the Commission strives to bring into
the public service an adequate number of other personnel whose diversified fields
of experience contribute to the effective and efficient operation of government.
