The city of Napa has reopened applications for a vacancy on the Civil Service Commission after the commission deadlocked earlier this month on appointing the only applicant, former Councilman Jim Krider.

Applicants must be city residents and registered voters for a period of one year. Applications must be received by 5 p.m., July 31.

The commission acts in an administrative capacity for the City Council on issues concerning personnel administration, classified service regulations, and appeals by individuals in the classified service regarding employment status or condition of employment. The commission also provides recommendations on salaries.

Two members are appointed by the City Council, two members are elected by classified employees, and one is appointed by the other four commission members.

This appointment will be made by the Civil Service Commission. It is likely the commission will interview applicants on Aug. 19.

The commission meets on the third Monday of each month. Meetings begin at 5:15 p.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 955 School St., Napa.

Applications are available on the city’s website,, or may be requested by contacting the City Clerk at or 707-257-9503.
