The Planning Commission shall consist of nine members, six of whom shall be representative, insofar as possible, of different professions or occupations and shall be appointed by the City Council, and three of whom shall be ex-officio members, namely: the Mayor, one member of the City Council and the City Manager. The appointments by the Council shall always be subject to the approval of a majority vote of the City Council. All members of the Planning Commission shall serve as such without compensation and the appointed members, other than ex-officio members, shall hold no other Municipal office, except that one of such members may be a member of the Zoning Board of Appeals. The terms of ex-officio members shall correspond to their respective official tenures, except that the term of the administrative official selected by the Council shall terminate with the majority vote of the Council. The term of each appointed member shall be three years or until his or her successor takes office, except that the respective terms of two of the members first appointed shall be for one year, and two for two years. Members may, after a public hearing, be removed by the City Council by a majority vote, for inefficiency, neglect of duty or malfeasance in office. Vacancies occurring otherwise than through the expiration of terms shall be filled for the unexpired term by selection by the majority vote of the Council.(1981 Code § 5.2)
