In case you weren't aware, guess who state statute already empowers to appoint the Plan Commission? Yep, you guessed it.
16.01 goes even farther than that . . .
(2) Composition . The City Plan Commission shall consist of nine (9) voting members. The Mayor or his/her designee shall serve as a member of the commission. The other members shall be three (3) members of the Common Council and five (5) citizens. The Mayor, at the annual organizational meeting each year, shall indicate to the Common Council whether he/she will serve as chairperson of the Plan Commission or inform the Common Council of the name of his/her designee. The Mayor may elect to assume membership on the commissionat any time. In the event the Mayor names a designee, the commission shall elect one (1) of its members to be chairperson. Three (3) of the members of the Plan Commission shall also be members of the Long-Range Transportation Planning Committee.
