The meeting was called to order at 5:10 p.m. at the City of Mercer Island Caucus Room, 9611 SE 36th Street, Mercer Island, WA.

Roll Call

Commissioners Blakney & Hill. Chief Elsoe, Chief Examiner/Secretary Segle, Police Operations Commander Holmes and Personnel & Training Sergeant Burnes.
Absent: Fire Commander Mauldin & Commissioner Maehara.

Special Business

Petition for Upcoming Lieutenant Promotional Testing Process:
Last meeting, Sergeant Keith McDonough petitioned the Commission to allow him to participate in the promotional testing process for the position of Lieutenant. Commissioner Blakney voted “no” based on the fact that Sergeant McDonough had been promoted to Sergeant less than one year ago. Commissioner Maehara voted “yes” based on the fact that Sergeant McDonough should be able to test for the position since the next opportunity for testing would not occur for a period of two years.

Since Commissioner Hill was absent at the last meeting, he was asked to make a decision regarding Sergeant McDonough’s request to take the test at this meeting. Sergeant McDonough provided information to the Commission regarding his request to take the upcoming promotional test. After considerable discussion, Commissioner Hill voted “no” based on Sergeant McDonough’s short tenure in the Sergeant’s position.

Off Agenda Items

There were none.

Next Meeting Date

The next Regular Meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, October 11, 2005 at 5:00 p.m., in the Caucus Room at City Hall.
