City Employee Residency Requirement for CIVILIANS - Please Change
Please allow city employees to live anywhere including NJ. As a civilian in an city agency we don't get the same benefits as a uniformed member. We don't receive free MetroCard/ reduced fair on MTA or LIRR. Our salaries are not sufficient enough to live in NY. Please allow us to move to NJ or anywhere we feel we can still commute to work without a problem. Please take this restriction away, and let us reside where we choose.

I think this could work with some stipulations. Like perhaps they can live outside of the 5 boroughs after "X" amount of years in City Service especially if they are public facing employees. And as long as they stay within other NY Counties such as Nassau, Westchester etc. Maybe there is a mile limit so there are no issues with the employee getting into work and having travel issues etc.
As a civilian for NYPD we have that option. After 2 years of service we can move to Nassau, Westchester etc . Uniform members receive a metro card that even works for express busses, and LIRR . Civilians don’t ! We get no OT . So why do We have to live in NY ? We should be allowed to move anywhere , including NJ. I’m not going to move somewhere knowing my commute is not going to work . But let me choose where I want to go. Specially since we don’t half the benefits and perks like uniform do. Don’t half us to the sale standards if clearly we’re not.
