Merit System Board
The role of the Merit System Board is to make recommendations to the City Administrator on appeals of disciplinary actions submitted by Classified employees. It has no decision-making authority. A hearing before the Board is a hearing which provides an employee with an opportunity to be heard in accordance with the due process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. Employees wishing to file an appeal to the Merit System Board should contact Human Resources at (928) 373-5125 for the required paperwork.
