7. Eligible Lists
If any applicant is a Veteran, additional points shall be added to their score, in accordance with Minnesota State Law.
If two eligible lists for the same position are in force, the second list shall be treated as a continuation of the first list. Eligible lists shall expire one year from the date of their establishment. However, the Human Resources Director may extend an eligible list for such period, not exceeding one year, or not exceeding three years for the title of Fire Fighter as may be advisable for the best interests of the City.
The eligible list for Library Aide shall expire six-months after the date it is established.
When an examination is scheduled for both promotion and original entrance, the names of eligibles shall be entered on separate eligible lists; those who have promotional rights shall have their names entered on a list called the "Promotion List," and all other eligibles shall be entered on the list known as the "Original Entrance List."
The names of persons eligible for reinstatement after resignation shall be considered as the highest names on the original entrance list.
Any person who resigns from the City Service shall not, during such separation, be certified from any eligible list as a promotion eligible but may, if such separation is without fault or delinquency on their part, be granted the rights of an original entrant on such list.
Employees on leaves of absence shall not be included on any certifications unless they request in writing that their names be included.
If an applicant is included on more than one eligible list, and has been appointed from one list, the applicant shall be removed from all other lists for equivalent positions, but shall continue to be included on lists for higher-paying positions.
Whenever discretionary changes are made in accordance with this section by the Human Resources Director, the effective date of the action shall be preceded by a twenty-day public notice period. This period shall be initiated by notice to the recognized bargaining unit for the title affected and the affected departments.
