Spokane City Council President Ben Stuckart will soon be handing out duties to the city’s six other council members.
The Spokane City Council on Monday unanimously agreed to give Stuckart the power to chose which members serve on what boards.
But Stuckart abandoned his proposal to require a supermajority vote to make future changes in the rules for how the council governed.
Each January, council members are assigned to sit on a variety of boards, including those that govern the city park system, the Spokane Transit Authority and the Spokane International Airport.
The change returns the rules to how they worked until the council revoked that right from former council President Joe Shogan.
Even though Stuckart will select a slate of council members to fill positions, the council still must vote on his picks. He said the process won’t change much.
