A resolution wending its way though the City Council could send a seismic wave through community boards throughout the borough.
Councilman Ben Kallos (D-Manhattan) wants borough presidents and Council members who make appointments to limit them to five consecutive terms; set term limits for board and committee chairmanships; and use things like meeting attendance and committee participation to end the practice of automatic reappointment.
His proposal also seeks to ban the appointment of executive board members of political parties or people serving on the staffs of elected officials.
Resolution 164 has 10 co-sponsors, including Danny Dromm (D-Jackson Heights), Peter Koo (D-Flushing) and Antonio Reynoso (Brooklyn, Queens).
A resolution doesn't do squat. You need to change the city charter.
