Three members appointed by the mayor, subject to confirmation by the common council. These members shall be appointed to a three-year term. b. Fifteen members, one appointed by the alderman or alderwoman of each aldermanic district, subject to confirmation by the common council. Initially, members from districts 1 through 3 shall be appointed to a three-year term; members from districts 4 through 9 shall be appointed to a two-year term ; and members from districts 10 through 15 shall be appointed to a one-year term. Subsequent appointments and reappointments shall be for three-year terms.
