Council Members Mark Manna and Steven Sanders introduced a resolution Monday asking the Government Study Committee to review town term limits for elected officials and provide recommendations.
“We’re committed to having term limits,” Manna said. “The question is, is two the right amount?”
Term-limit rules were adopted before residents voted to downsize the board to five members. Six members are currently serving, but another seat will be eliminated during the next Town Board election.The current board is the first to be subject to the town’s two-term limit. The previous council members who passed the term-limits law had grand-fathered in all the previous terms they served, including the one they were serving at the time.
Now that the Board is actually facing being ousted by the two term law they are scrambling. Watch how they scurry.
