Civil Service Commission

The Civil Service Commission of the City of Chillicothe is a quasi-judicial agency made up of 3 members appointed by the Mayor (under Ohio Revised Code 124.40). One mission of the Commission is to prescribe, amend and enforce rules in chapter 124 of the Ohio Revised Code.

The Commission has statutory jurisdiction over employment-related matters pertaining to exempt employees in the classified civil service, to non-exempt employees in the classified service who have not been organized, and to non-exempt employees whose collective bargaining agreement allows an appeal to the Board.

Another function of the Commission and the one you are probably most familiar with is that the commission prepares, conducts and grades all examinations for positions in the classified service. If you are interested in working for the City of Chillicothe as a police officer, firefighter, laborer or most other City positions or if you would to for the Chillicothe City Schools as a custodian or in the cafeteria, you will have to take a Civil Service exam. Information pertaining to upcoming examination dates will be posted on this page and also on the Chillicothe Job Bank website at
