Question: Should section be amended to provide that a violation is a “misdemeanor of the first degree” and not specifically specify the amount of fine and jail time required to be imposed?

Proposed Language:

§ 141     Violations and Penalties

It shall be the duty of the Civil Service Commission to supervise the execution of the foregoing civil service provisions of this Charter and the rules made thereunder, and it shall be the duty of persons in the service of the City to comply with such rules and to aid in their enforcement. Any person who, by himself or in cooperation with one or more persons, willfully or corruptly deceives or obstructs any person in respect to his right to take part in any test for admission to the service of the City; or willfully or corruptly marks, grades or reports upon the test or proper standing of any person tested for appointment in the civil service, or aids in so doing; or willfully or corruptly makes any false representations as to the results of such tests or concerning the person so tested; or willfully or corruptly furnishes to any person special or secret information for the purpose of either improving or injuring the prospects or chances of any person so tested or to be tested, or to be appointed, employed or promoted; or willfully impersonates any other person or permits or aids, in any manner, any persons to impersonate him in connection with any test, registration, application or appointment, or request to be tested or registered; or who makes known or assists in making known to any applicant for test, in advance of such test, any question to be asked on such test; or willfully or through culpable negligence violates any of the civil service provisions of this Charter, or any of the rules of the Commission made in pursuance thereof, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor of the first degree.
