Civil Service Commission in its annual report to ~ the Mayor and Council today, again recommended establishment ..of a wage scale, in conjunction • with the job classification report. The commission said a scale would provide opportunity for re•'.'.' cognition of seniority- on th'e job =' and an employe would have merit increases at various stages of his employment. The report, covering. 15 months ending June 31, said the major ..- i task centered around a study of and a' report on job classification ; of .all city employes. The report .1 became effective . July ' 1, it said, adding there may • be- differences of opinion as to classification of a . position pr title for a job and the -•commission invites recommenda- •" tions or suggestions which may make the : report more effective. .The wage scale recommeridation .';' was made by the commission with '-'.the'classification report. The classification report has not been made .: public by city officials although it was.received last June. ' .... • ; Urge Unified Law '" "Noting that the last annual re• port'had called for appointment of ... a committee to study existing Civil Service laws and to prevent ;' a hew unified "law", it added "We are still of the opinion that a unified, law would be advantageous:" : The major task for the current • year is to revise the handbook on -..' rules and to make a copy avail•'•' able to each employe. It noted more information L be. ing received by its City Hall office relative to change of status of em- ployes and adding of new employ. es.

Up .to how, he said,-there have been only two — skilled and unskilled.. He' added v/hen. he motioned to have .the report-'accepted and' filed he did not intend to have it "buried." Mayor Roy W.
