Thanks for the advice. The girl I work with told me that she spoke to civil service and they told her that a town can apply the age limit at any time either after the test is taken or even after a list has been established. She gave them a hypothetical scenario: a person takes the test, gets a 98, is number one on the list and is 40 years old. If the town/city doesn't like that person, they can then put in for the age limit and the person can't get hired. Civil service told her yes! Seems kind of fishy to me. Some of the guys here want her to fight it, but she hasn't even got her score yet. Oh well!
