The terms of the initial appointments to the CWAC from each ward shall be as follows:
Two (2) members shall serve a term of three (3) years; two (2) members shall serve a term of two (2) years; and one (1) member shall serve a term of one (1) years. The initial terms of the members from each ward shall be determined by lot. Following the terms of the initial appointments, all terms of appointment shall be for three (3) years, provided however, that an appointment to fill a vacancy during a term shall be for the unexpired balance of that term. For purposes of this section “initial appointments” shall mean the first forty-five (45) members appointed to the CWAC following the adoption of this ordinance establishing a forty-five (45) member CWAC. All successor appointments shall be made in the same manner as provided for in § 2-26.1. A member of the CWAC may be reappointed to succeed him/herself.
Except for the initial appointments, the effective date of all appointments shall be June 1st. For the initial appointments, the effective date of each such appointment shall be the date of City Council approval of said initial appointments, provided said approval is on or before June 1st. Appointments made after June 1st shall be given retroactive effect to June 1. The term of an appointment shall expire on May 31st of the year in which the appointment would expire. Members, as distinguished from current members as defined in § 2-26.1, may continue to serve beyond the expiration of their term, until their reappointment, the appointment of a successor, or their removal, whichever should occur first. A current member, as defined in § 2-26.1, may be appointed as one of the initial appointments under this section. If a current member accepts such initial appointment, that acceptance shall cause the automatic termination of their present term.
