The city of Canton has decided to put out the "help wanted" sign...to convicted felons.
According to The Repository, Canton's Civil Service Commission accepted the recommendations from the city's Law Director Friday to allow convicted felons to apply for work with the city, and be hired if they are qualified.
Cincinnati and Cleveland had previously voted to allow convicted felons to work for their cities.
The move in Canton allows those with a criminal record to apply and examine for most positions, but background checks will still be issued, and those with a felony on their record will have to disclose it during an interview.
The administration will be able to consider factors like the nature of the offense, how long ago it took place, and steps taken by the offender for rehabilitation.
