  • Measure E: Whether an ordinance should be adopted that authorizes the Civil Service Commission to establish entry level probationary periods for civil service appointees.
  • Measure F: Whether an ordinance should be adopted that extends the period an employee has to appeal a disciplinary action from five business days to ten business days. Since Measure F was approved, the length will go to ten business days.
