What is Civil Service?

The majority of positions in local government fall under the Civil Service System.  A Civil Service employee can be anyone from a deputy sheriff, secretary, registered nurse, mechanic, nurse's aide, attorney, accountant, laborer, food service worker, etc.  The Civil Service System is required by the New York State Constitution and is intended to ensure all positions are filled by merit and fitness.  Cayuga County Civil Service manages all civil service positions in the county including towns, villages, school districts, and special districts, except the City of Auburn and the Auburn Enlarged City School District.
