The following policy was adopted by City Council on April 21, 2020:  “The City Council shall have as its policy that no individual citizen shall serve on any board or commission to which the Mayor or City Council appoints a member more than two consecutive five year terms, more than three consecutive four-year terms, more than four consecutive three-year terms, more than six consecutive two-year terms, or exceed a total of twelve consecutive years regardless of term length.  (An unexpired term does not constitute a full term and shall not be considered when defining the policy.)  Nothing in this policy precludes a City Council Member from serving more than the maximum allowed consecutive terms on any board or commission to which a City Council representative must be appointed.  Further, nothing in this policy precludes the City Council from replacing an individual at the conclusion of any of his/her terms.  Citizens will be able to regain eligibility to serve on a board or commission after two years.  For City committees without a previously adopted absenteeism policy, any committee member with three (3) consecutive unexcused absences shall automatically be removed from office.”
