Q May the board of aldermen make appointments to the municipal school board when two aldermen have relatives employed by the district?

A Yes, but the board members whose relatives are employed by the school district should fully recuse themselves from all matters involving the municipal school district in order to fully comply with Section 25-4-101, and should vote on appointments only when their recusal would result in the loss of a quorum.
