Lawton Personnel BoardBoard
The Lawton Personnel Board exists to hear appeals by employees relating to lay-offs, suspensions, demotions, or terminations of employment. The board shall hold a public hearing on the appeal, or give an adequate opportunity therefore, and shall report in writing its findings and recommendations, in cases of subordinates of the city manager, to the city manager, and in other cases to the respective authorities having power of removal. The city manager or other authority having power of removal shall then make a final decision in writing regarding the appellant's layoff, suspension, demotion, or removal, as the case may be; provided, that, if the board finds that the layoff, suspension, demotion, or removal was made for a political reason or reasons or for any other reason or reasons than the good of the service, it shall veto the layoff, suspension, demotion, or removal, and the action by the city manager or other authority shall be nullified thereby.
