Supervisors consider split rec and park appointments 

The Board of Supervisors Rules Committee meets Thursday to vote on a proposed charter amendment that would take away the mayor’s sole appointing authority of the Recreation and Park Commission. As it works now, the seven commissioners are appointed by the mayor. The 11-member board can reject an appointment with eight votes.

The charter amendment would split up the appointments so the board appoints three, the mayor three and the board’s president appoints one jointly with the mayor.

The charter amendment would require voter approval, and would require approval by the full board to make it onto the November ballot.

Rec and Park Director Phil Ginsburg has spoken out against the measure.

The committee meets at 10 a.m., at City Hall, in Room 263.
