Term limits ordinance moves forward
Tuesday, June 3, 2014 — An ordinance to limit a supervisor’s time on the board to no more than three terms, passed its first reading during a Tuesday, May 27 meeting of the Lassen County Board of Supervisors.
The ordinance was approved in a 4 to 1 vote and will come back for a second reading Tuesday, June 10. Once adopted, the ordinance becomes effective after 30 days.
The elections officer will then be directed to place the ordinance on the ballot of a regularly scheduled county election.
Lassen County voters will decide if they want to impose term limits in November.
County Counsel Bob Burns read the ordinance into the record as requested by the board, who could have also waived the reading.
