§ 2483. Classification plan
Each board, as soon as practicable (not to exceed a period of
eighteen months) after this Part takes effect in the municipality,
shall adopt a classification plan for the fire and police services
of the municipality. Each classification plan shall consist of
classes to be designated either by standard titles, ranks, or a
combination thereof, for all positions included in the classified
service for each of the fire and police services. The
classification plan may be divided into groups of classes. The
various classes of positions shall be arranged in each
classification plan so as to show the principal and natural lines
of promotion and demotion. The classification plan shall be
adopted as rules of the board, in the manner provided by this Part
for the adoption of rules. Rules creating the classification plan,
future classifications, abolition of any classification, any
amendment thereto, or revision thereof shall be adopted by a board
only after consultation with the appointing authority, and the
state examiner. The original classification plan to be established
when this Part takes effect in a municipality shall be prepared,
after consultation with the appointing authority, and submitted to
the board for its approval and adoption, by the state examiner.
The board may amend or revise the classification plans before
adopting them. The state examiner shall advise and assist the
board in all future classifications when requested to do so.
