Our Mission is to provide the City with the best candidates for employment and promotion that will deliver quality service to the community, to protect the rights of classified employees, and to maintain the integrity of the Commission by serving as an independent and impartial ruling body.
The Civil Service Commission is responsible for advertising and posting classified positions. Most positions in the City are classified and therefore protected under Civil Service rules. The following are some positions that are classified: Clerks, Secretaries, Water/Street Maintenance, Police Officers, Dispatchers, Court Liaison Officers, Code Compliance Officers, and Building Inspectors, among others.
Unclassified Positions are exempt from examinations and consist of elected officials (Mayor, City Attorney, City Auditor, and City Council) and their staff (secretaries/clerks/assistants and department directors).
Reynoldsburg is known as "The Birthplace of the Tomato". The tomato was 'born' in Reynoldsburg in the 19th century with the help of local favorite son Alexander W. Livingston. Livingston developed the 'Paragon Tomato', billed as the first ever tomato bred for commercial use. His legacy lives on in the Livingston House and Museum on Graham Road, which is listed on the National Registry of Historic Homes.
