(CONSTANTINE) – The Village of Constantine is looking at changing the length of terms of the Village Council members.
During Monday's meeting, Village Manager Mark Honeysett presented a draft ordinance that would expand Council members terms to four years. Honeysett explains how it would work if it is approved. LINKC.
By making this change, Honeysett is hoping that more people would be encouraged to run for the Council, since the terms would be for four years instead of two years.
In a related matter, Honeysett also presented an ordinance that would give the Village Council the ability appoint a Clerk and a Treasurer instead of having these positions elected.
Honeysett shares why this proposal is being brought before the Village Council. LINKD.
The Village Council voted unanimously to hold two public hearings during their October 21 meeting to get community input on both of these proposals.
