    The board works with the Human Resources Department to resolve employee grievances on an as needed basis and meets on a periodic basis to discuss personnel administration issues.

    The board meets on the 1st Thursday of each month at 2:30 p.m. in Room 623 of the City Hall Building. The normal length of the meeting is one to two hours.

    Chair - Alan Coxie - acoxie@bellsouth.net
