Single-issue on ballot April 16

Post Date:04/08/2019 8:00 AM

Vote at Frank Brown Park

On Tuesday, April 16, voters in Panama City Beach will go to the polls to vote on a proposed change to the City’s Charter related to the duties of the Civil Service Board.

Currently, the City is the only community in Bay County which relies on a Civil Service Board for the hiring process. The vote would give that authority to department heads and their designees. The Civil Service Board would still operate as an employee grievance board.

Voting is from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. at Frank Brown Park. The ballot will read:

Whether to repeal the existing Civil Service system and concurrently re-establish it in the City’s Code of Ordinances. Currently, all permanent employees are hired and promoted by a Civil Service Board. If the charter amendment is approved, City staff could expeditiously hire and promote permanent  employees according to ordinances, policies and rules adopted by the Council. The Civil Service Board will continue to hear disciplinary appeals.

A YES vote changes the process; a NO vote keeps hiring as is.

Public Information Officer Debbie Ward can be reached at or (850) 233-5100, Ext. 2261.
