AB considering four-year mayoral terms

The Atlantic Beach City Commission is considering approving an ordinance that would enable voters to decide whether to extend the length of mayoral terms from two to four years.

If the ordinance is adopted, voters will decide in a referendum whether to make the change to four-year mayoral terms via a charter amendment. The next City of Atlantic Beach election is in November 2020; if approved by voters, the change would become effective in November 2022. The other City Commission members already serve four-year terms.

The Commission preliminarily approved the ordinance on first reading at its Feb. 25 meeting and could give final approval at its March 11 meeting.

A public hearing will be held before the Commission’s vote on March 11; the meeting begins at 6:30 p.m.
