Board looking to share appointees 

The Board of Supervisors Rules Committee will meet Friday to discuss the proposed amendment to The City’s charter that would share the appointees to the Park and Recreation commission.

Organizers behind the grass roots group “Take Back Our Parks” have been advocating for support of a charter amendment that would give the mayor three appointees, the board of supervisor three appointees and a shared appointee between the mayor and president of the Board of Supervisors.

Currently all seven positions on the board are appointed by the mayor’s office.

Take Back Our Parks says the changes would allow for more accountability and bring oversight and transparency to the department.

The group is encouraging residents to write supervisors to get the amendment placed on the November ballot.

The rules committee meets at 10 a.m. in City Hall.
