Commissioners Blakney & Hill. Chief Elsoe, Personnel & Training Sergeant Burns.

Approval of Minutes:
Moved by Blakney and seconded by Hill to approve the minutes of July 12, 2005 as submitted. Motion carried.
No new personnel orders
Police Oral Boards:
There was discussion regarding allowing Police to hold additional oral boards in the event we are unable to hire two qualified candidates off of the existing list. Chief Elsoe discussed the possibility of inviting 10-15 candidates after we get the next set of test scores from PST.
It was agreed that we would exhaust efforts to hire from the current list and report back to the commissioners on the success rate. Based on the success rate of hiring off the current list, we may ask for permission to interview additional candidates, in numbers less than 25. All agreed it would be wise to hold a special meeting once the backgrounds are completed and any job offers are made.
Approval of current Police Officer Candidate list:
Commissioners Blakney and Hill signed the Entry Level Eligibility List.
