Mayor Pro Tem Mitchell has requested a discussion on an item at tomorrow’s Council meeting.
The last discussion on the term issue occurred on July 2, 2019, based on a report from the Charter Review Commission. Voters also voted on non-binding referendum questions in the 2019 election. A majority of voters voted to keep the Council term to 2 years. Voters also voted to have staggered terms if Council terms are changed from 2 years to 4 years.
Two votes will be taken if the Council wants to include the question on the November 2023 ballot. The ballot language must be approved by September 5. The November 2023 ballot gauges resident opinion and the results are not binding. After reviewing the results, the Mayor and Council can decide whether to proceed with further discussion.
