The term of office of each appointee shall commence on the first day of January and shall expire on the 31st day of December. The terms shall be staggered by one year so that the terms of no less than half of the Board membership existing at the time of the passage of this section shall expire on December 31, 2016, and the other half shall expire on December 31, 2017. The Board shall forward to the City Manager a list of half of the membership that will serve until December 31, 2017, for review by the Mayor and Council.
[Amended 9-27-2016 by Ord. No. 35-2016]
The Board shall consist of 25 members, including a Chairperson, who shall be designated annually by the Mayor and Council. The Mayor and Council may outline rules and regulations for the Board to follow in order to fulfill its duties. The Board shall keep a record of its proceedings and meet at least quarterly, and as frequently as may be provided for in its rules and regulations and as circumstances may require.
The duties of the members of the Board shall be to:
Study and evaluate, on an ongoing basis, those programs and services provided by the City which impact uniquely and substantially upon multiple unit dwellers.
Make recommendations to the Mayor and Council and the City Manager for the improvement of such existing programs and services and the addition of any new programs and services it deems reasonable and appropriate.
Prepare such advisory reports and perform such other duties as may from time to time be requested by the Mayor and Council concerning City services, programs and policies which are the subject of consideration or evaluation by the City Council.
In the event that any member of the Board shall miss three consecutive meetings, the Board shall report such absences to the Mayor and Council. If the Mayor and Council, after due inquiry, are satisfied that the absences were not occasioned by reasonable cause, the Board Member may be removed by resolution of the Mayor and Council.
