[HISTORY: Adopted by the Common Council of the City of Glens Falls 1-11-2011 by L.L. No. 2-2011. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Code of Ethics — See Ch. 15.
The Common Council of the City of Glens Falls, by adoption of Local Law No. 4-2008, authorized the transfer of administering civil service responsibilities from the City of Glens Falls Personnel Officer to Warren County Civil Service. Because of this transfer of services and as advised by Warren County Civil Service, it would be more appropriate to create a Human Resources Department. In addition, the duties and title of "Personnel Officer" are no longer appropriate for the administrator of said office. The title of "Human Resources Director" was recommended by Warren County Civil Service. This position shall be the director of the City of Glens Falls Human Resources Department.
There is hereby established in the City of Glens Falls the Human Resources Department, replacing the Personnel Department.
The administrative head of the Human Resources Department shall be the Director of the Human Resources Department, who shall be appointed by the Mayor of the City of Glens Falls. Duties include, but are not limited to, all aspects of human resource management, including labor relations, employee benefits, compensation, training and disciplinary action; the Director will have the power to appoint or remove employees that may be established by the Mayor and Common Council.
In addition to the Director, the Human Resources Department shall have such additional staff and personnel as the Mayor shall, from time to time, determine. The Director shall have the power of appointment for the positions created by the Mayor.
