The number of citizens <br />qualified for such service always exceeds the number of appointments that periodically <br />can be made by the Council. <br />On or before December 31 of each year, the City Clerk shall prepare a list of all <br />appointive terms of Boards, Commissions and Committees which will expire during the <br />next calendar year, with the name of the incumbent appointee, the date of appointment, <br />the date the term expires, and the necessary qualifications for the position.
