§ 2478. Rules
Each board may adopt and execute rules, regulations, and orders
necessary or desirable effectively to carry out the provisions of
this Part, and shall do so when expressly required by this Part.
No rule, regulation, or order shall be contrary to, or in violation
of, any provision, purpose, or intent of this Part or contrary to
any other provision of law. The board may amend or repeal any rule
or part thereof in the same manner provided herein for the adoption
of the rule. All rules shall be applicable to both the fire and
police classified services, unless by express provisions therein,
it is made applicable to only one of the services.
A board may adopt any rule, either in its proposed or revised form,
after holding a public hearing at which any municipal officer,
employee, private citizen, and the state examiner shall be given an
opportunity to show cause why the proposed rule, amendment, or any
part thereof should not be adopted. Before the board holds this
public hearing, it shall furnish at least thirty days notice in
advance of the date, time, and place therefor to the mayor,
commissioner of public safety, and other municipal commissioner
when the rule may in any way affect, the chief and each station of
the departmental service to be affected by the adoption of any such
rule, and to the state examiner. A copy of all proposed rules to
be discussed at any hearing shall be furnished with all notices.
Each notice and copy of proposed rule furnished the various
stations of a respective department shall be posted upon the
bulletin board of each station for a period of at least thirty days
in advance of the hearing.

is a new rule or amendment to an existing rule, or an abolition in
whole or part thereof, it shall furnish an official copy thereof to
all persons and places set forth above.
Rules adopted under the authority of this section shall have the
force and effect of law.
