The new NYC Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS) Civil Service exam testing center at 1932 Arthur Avenue (off East Tremont Road) opened today with a ribbon cutting ceremony by DCAS Commissioner Lisette Camilo, Councilman I. Daneek Miller Chair of the Committee on Civil Service and Labor, and Councilman Rafael Salamanca whose council district serves as the location.
Bronx residents no longer have to go to another borough to take a civil service test as they had to in the past with the opening of this new Bronx civil service testing center. DCAS Commissioner Lisette Camilo said that there are now testing centers in each of the five boroughs of the city. Councilman Miller said that with the expected turnover in city employment that is expected from retiring this civil service testing center was needed to provide the people of the Bronx with better options to take civil service tests.
This address 1932 Arthur Avenue is home to other city agencies including Bronx Community Board 6.
