Candidates Who Win City Council Seats Will Serve Two-Year Terms–Not Four

June 22, 2021 By Allie Griffin

Candidates on the ballot for City Council seats are competing for a two-year term—not the four-year term members normally serve.

Council members elected this year will complete a two-year term for the first time in two decades due to a provision in the city charter related to the census.

The provision mandates that every 20 years, terms are reduced from four years to two years to coincide with the redrawing of council districts.
