RESOLUTION DECLARING COUNCIL'S POLICY ON RESIDENCY OF MEMBERS OF BOARDS AND COMMISSION.
BE IT RESOLVED, that the city council of Duluth declares the following
policy for evaluation of applicants for service on a city board or commission:
Before deliberating upon the appointment of a citizen to a city of Duluth board or commission, the council shall be informed of the residency of the citizen-applicant. The council shall confirm the appointment of only citizen-applicants who are residents of the city, unless special exception from this policy be made by the council. Should the administration propose to appoint a nonresident, the reason for the proposal, and the special circumstances that justify an exception from the council's policy, should be communicated to the council so that it can deliberate about the matter.
