Advertising and Promotion commissioners tabled their review of applicants to replace outgoing commissioners Maudie Schmitt and Bob Davis, whose terms expire March 31. City Attorney Kit Williams said state law prohibits the commission from appointing new commissioners until positions are vacant. Schmitt must be replaced by an owner or manager of a hotel, motel or restaurant. Davis can be replaced by any member of the public at-large.
