   (A)   The mayor, with the approval of the city council, shall appoint the members of each commission. Each council member shall strive to nominate a commissioner from the council members' district to serve on each commission. The mayor shall nominate one commissioner at-large for each commission.
   (B)   Except for the planning commission, the first three members of each commission nominated by city council members representing Districts 3, 4, and 6 appointed after this division becomes effective shall serve until December 31, 2020, or until a successor is appointed, unless the member is earlier removed by the city council, dies, resigns, or is deemed to have resigned pursuant to this code. The next four members of each commission nominated by city council members representing Districts 1, 2, 5, and the mayor's at-large nominees appointed after this division becomes effective shall serve until December 31, 2022, or until a successor is appointed, unless the member is earlier removed by the city council, dies, resigns, or is deemed to have resigned pursuant to this code. All members of each commission appointed thereafter shall serve until December 31 of the final year of the appointing council members' term or until a successor is appointed, unless the member is earlier removed by the city council, dies, resigns, or is deemed to have resigned pursuant to this code. The mayor's appointees shall serve until the end of the term of the council members for Districts 3, 4, and 6, or until a successor is appointed, unless the member is earlier removed by the city council, dies, resigns, or is deemed to have resigned pursuant to this code.
   (C)   A commissioner may be reappointed by the city council. However, no member of the commission may be appointed to serve more than two consecutive terms. This provision applies prospectively to all commissions. If a member serves less than half of a term, that member shall be eligible to serve two full consecutive terms thereafter.
   (D)   In the event of a vacancy, the council member or mayor who made the original appointment shall nominate a replacement to complete the term of the member creating the vacancy.
