Sec. 1010.  Certification.
 
   (a)   Three Highest Whole Scores.  The appointing authority of a department shall notify the board when one or more classified positions are to be filled.  The general manager of the Personnel Department shall certify to the appointing authority the names and addresses of those eligibles having the three highest whole scores on the register for the class to which the positions belong.  The appointing authority shall fill the positions from the names certified by the general manager within 60 days from the date of certification.  Certified test scores shall be made public.
 
   (b)   Selective Certification.  Upon request of the appointing authority and approval by the board, the general manager of the Personnel Department may establish a separate register of eligibles from among those eligibles having the three highest whole scores based on factors such as special skills, licenses, language proficiency and specialized training.
 
   (c)   Extra Certifications.  If there are sufficient eligibles available, the general manager of the Personnel Department shall certify at least five names and addresses more than the number of positions to be filled.  If there are less than five available eligibles more than the number of positions to be filled within a range of three whole scores, the general manager of the Personnel Department shall certify the names and addresses of all available eligibles within such additional number of whole scores as necessary to provide a minimum of five available eligibles more than the number of positions to be filled.
 
   Where there are remaining on the eligible list less than five available eligibles more than the number of positions to be filled and the general manager of the Personnel Department finds that it is for the good of the civil service, the names of all available eligibles may be certified and appointments may be made from among those available eligibles.
 
   (d)   Certification Within Range of One or More Whole Scores.  In consideration of the number of vacancies to be filled and the likely number of available eligibles within a range of three whole scores, the general manager of the Personnel Department may certify the names and addresses of all available eligibles within a range of one or more whole scores whenever a certification is requested by an appointing authority and there are at least five eligibles available within such range over and above the number of positions to be filled.
 
   (e)   Order of List.  Whenever the general manager of the Personnel Department certifies the names and addresses of eligible candidates, the names shall be listed in the order of the whole scores achieved, except that within the range of each single whole score the names of eligibles shall be listed in random order.
 
   (f)   [Repealed.]
