A question that Chuck Strome has so far refused to answer from Talk of the Sound is pretty simply, who within the City government has the power to fire Domenic Procopio as Chairman of the Municipal Civil Service Commission. From our reading of the City Charter it would appear that this power is reserved for the Mayor. Section 175 on "Appointment of Commissioners" reads The members of the Municipal Civil Service Commission as prescribed by law shall be appointed by the Mayor.
The entire section of the relevant portion of the City Charter follows:
Section 173 Municipal Civil Service Commission – 59 – The Municipal Civil Service Commission shall be constituted as prescribed by law and shall elect one of its members President. The members of the Commission who are in office when this Charter takes effect shall be the members of the Commission (subject to the power of removal as prescribed by law) until the expiration of their terms of office and until their successors are appointed and qualify. Their compensation shall be fixed by the Council.
