HB3116 by Menendez (Relating to the creation of an alternate sheriff's department civil service system in certain counties; creating offenses.), As Introduced
No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would add Subchapter C to Chapter 158, Local Government Code, to provide an alternate civil service system for deputy sheriffs in a sheriff's office in a county with a population of more than 50,000. Requirements and procedures that must be followed are included in the bill.
Local Government Impact
Applicable counties would incur costs associated with establishing the alternate civil service system, including costs of elections, appointments, rule-making, posting notices, providing office space and furniture for civil service commissioners, and operational procedures. Other costs would depend on the number of personnel issues that require civil service investigations and inspections.
