The Civil Service Board was established in 1949 by the General Assembly of the State of Georgia for the purpose of hearing and determining the appeals and complaints respecting the administrative work of the Director, and such other matters as may be referred to the Board by the Director, to make such investigations as may be requested by the Mayor or the Aldermen where general city employees are affected, or on its own motion and to report thereon. Its basic function is to hear appeals from disciplinary action against an employee when it is alleged the action is taken for political or religious reasons.

Overlapping six (6) year terms. No term limits.
