Q May appointed members of municipal school boards “hold over” after their term expires until such time as the city council approves the mayor’s nominee to fill said position?

A No. There is no authority for a member of a municipal school board to “hold over” after his or her term has expired. The position in question becomes vacant upon the expiration of the term of the previous member and will remain vacant until a successor is nominated and approved.
