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.
