This board was established by the Board of County Commissioners through adoption of Escambia County Ordinance No. 2005-38, enacted on August 18, 2005. Upon the legislative sunset of the Escambia County Civil Service Board, effective October 1, 2005, the MSPB was created to provide a fair and equitable mechanism for the expeditious review of appeals and grievances of the classified employees of the county before a non-partisan deliberative body. County Ordinance 2005-38 provides the means for a classified, permanent employee under the jurisdiction of the MSPB to appeal disciplinary actions, and that these employees may file an appeal or grievance for perceived violations of the ordinance or the rules. Presently, the classified employees under the jurisdiction of the Board of County Commissioners, the Sheriff’s Office, the Supervisor of Elections and the Santa Rosa Island Authority are covered under the MSPB.

The MSPB is composed of five volunteer members, each selected by the Board of County Commissioners. Each member serves a two-year term. MSPB meetings are typically held once per month but may occasionally meet a second time, if needed.  Meetings are normally held on the second Monday of each month at 5 p.m. On months in which a hearing occurs, the hearing is held at approximately 5:30 p.m. in the BCC meeting room at the conclusion of the business portion of MSPB meeting.
