Beloit PFC considers changing hiring rules

Print Article

BELOIT - The Beloit Police and Fire Commission on Monday moved closer to change rules related to hiring public safety workers.

Under the proposals, all firefighter applicants would have to take a written test. Similar tests already are in place for the police department.

The written test is set to measure basic skills, reading, writing and math.

All candidates must obtain a grade of 70 percent or higher for further consideration for hire and approval by the commission.

Other amendment changes clarify language within the rules and regulations related to the city's human resources department.

Other changes would modify the eligibility pool deadlines for potential candidates setting a two-year expiration date for fire candidates and six months for police candidates.

A vote on final approval of changes will be considered at a future meeting.
