CSC meets on Rota and Tinian
The Civil Service Commission recently journeyed to Rota and Tinian for monthly meetings—a milestone made possible by the administration of Gov. Ralph DLG Torres and the Legislature allocating funds for the trips.
“We have been planning to do this since we reconstituted the commission in 2012,” said commission chair Herman R. Guerrero, “but budget limitations didn’t allow it until this year. We thank the governor and the Legislature for providing us with a budget for [fiscal year] 2017 that allowed these trips. We hope our future budgets allow continued visits.”
Guerrero said the commission wants to meet on Rota and Tinian at least once a year to allow civil service employees to meet with them and share any concerns.
“These are landmark trips,” he said. “To my knowledge, these were the first times that the Civil Service Commission met outside Saipan.”
He said there are civil service employees both on Tinian and and Rota “and we want to meet with them and give them the opportunity to attend our meetings.”
The commission met on Rota from July 25 to July 27 at the Rota Health Clinic.
The meeting on Tinian was held on Aug. 23 to Aug. 25 at the Tinian Gaming Control Commission conference room.
Both meetings were attended by several civil service employees who participated in the commission’s discussion. On both trips, the commissioners also visited other government offices. (PR)
