According to the city's charter, Aisenstark — who was hired for his city position in the mid-1990s — reports to the Board of Legislative Reference, composed of the mayor, city solicitor, president of the Johns Hopkins University, deans of the University of Maryland and University of Baltimore schools of law, director of the Enoch Pratt Free Library and a member of the City Council.
"There is not currently a council member serving on that board," said Lester Davis, spokesman for Baltimore City Council President Bernard C. "Jack" Young. "The Council President believes that the board should certainly meet more frequently than once a decade. He will soon meet with his colleagues on the council to determine the best member to appoint to the board."
Aides to some other board members did not respond to inquiries from The Baltimore Sun about the panel's status, except to say they were unfamiliar with it and would research the matter.
