    Default Letter from Meriden

    Got a letter from Meriden today with my score and ranking giving me a "correction". They told me my ranking over the phone a couple of weeks ago and I guess they made a mistake because some paper work was stuck together. Got dropped down one number. Its not huge but one spot on the list could be the one job extra they dont go on the list. It says on the letter though that they are only keeping the list for one year. Don't most towns keep it for two. I want to say that's what they did last time.

    Yea, I dont get why they are only keeping this list for only a year, kinda stinks but what are you gonna do.

    Come on give it up, where are ya at on the list? Was yours a correction letter? I was number 5 now bumped up to 6. The woman did tell me that 2 conditional offers were made. I asked if they were accepted and she didn't know. Keep your fingers crossed that they weren't.

    Generally, lists are created for one year with the option to extend it another year if desired. That info would be in the town's personnel rules.

    Usually, with the cost of running a test, lists are extended if they haven't tapped too many names off of it. I'm not from Meriden though, maybe somebody from there has more info on their presonnel rules.

    Rock on Crank, maybe we'll be in the academy together in the Spring with a little luck and a few retirements.
