Analysis

This ordinance requires the mayor to nominate members to the historic preservation commission within 90 days of a written notification by the city clerk of a vacancy. Should the mayor not nominate a member within 90 days of notification by the city clerk, the common council president will have 90 days to nominate a member, subject to common council confirmation. This ordinance also requires the city clerk to provide the appropriate appointing authority with written notification within 5 working days of receiving notification of a vacancy in any board, committee or commission.
