(1) a citizen of the United States of America and an elector of Spartanburg County in which he resides, who can read and write the English Language, and must have been a resident of Spartanburg County for at least one year. However, an applicant for an entry-level position as a public safety officer is exempt from the one-year residency requirement and the requirement to be an elector of Spartanburg County, and an applicant who is hired from within or outside of Spartanburg County at an entry-level position may not be promoted until one year in the system has elapsed;
(2) not more than thirty-five and not less than twenty-one years of age, in ordinary good health, of good moral character, and of temperate habits. These facts must be ascertained in a manner the commission considers advisable."
