Aldermen in Somerville will consider a proposed appointment to a vacant spot on the board in a meeting Thursday.

Sean O'Donovan resigned as Ward 5 alderman April 11, and recommended the aldermen appoint Courtney O'Keefe to his seat.

Aldermen Bruce Desmond and Bob Trane both called for O'Keefe's immediate appointment, but the other aldermen elected to send the matter to the board's Confirmation of Appointments Committee. The committee met April 17, and after a review, voted to move O'Keefe's proposed appointment back to the board as a whole.

O'Keefe has previously served on the city's Zoning Review Committee and Human Rights Commission.

Thursday's meeting takes place at 7 p.m. at City Hall.
