Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

The board of standards and appeals shall consist of five members to be termed commissioners to be appointed by the mayor, each for a term of six years; provided, however, that each member shall be subject to the advice and consent of the council after a public hearing.  Within thirty days after the first stated meeting of the council after receipt of a mayoral nomination for such an appointment, the council shall hold a hearing and act upon such nomination.  In the event the council does not act within such period, the nomination shall be deemed to be confirmed.
