The Lincoln Parish Fire District No. 1’s Board of Commissioners last night voted to amend the rules for who can serve on the civil service board for the fire district.
Previously, only permanent classified employees who lived in the district could serve on the civil service board. That eliminated any employees who lived within the city limits of Ruston, Choudrant, or Grambling, or any employees who lived outside Lincoln Parish.
The rule change would allow any permanent employee below the rank of district chief to serve on the board, no matter their place of residence.
