Supes seeking to take appointment power away from mayor 

A number of measures proposed for the November ballot would strip the mayor of some of his appointing power, but allow the Board of Supervisors to appoint some of the members on certain bodies that now are only appointed by the mayor.

The first of these measures is before the Board of Supervisors Rules Committee on Friday.

This charter amendment would address appointments of the Recreation and Park Commission. Currently, the commission has seven members who serve four-year terms and are all appointed by the mayor. The proposed charter amendment would split up the appointments between the mayor and the board. The mayor would appoint three, the board three, and one would be jointly appointed by the mayor and board.

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