LOVELAND, OH:  Proposed ballot language to the City Charter addressing

Term Limits

The City Charter Art. II "THE CITY COUNCIL" should be amended to establish the term limitations of the elected officials in the City of Loveland. Presently, persons serving in elected public office may serve as long as they keep getting elected at the scheduled municipal election. Beginning with candidates elected at the scheduled municipal election in 2017, a limit of two (2) four-year (4) terms would be established. All subsequent candidates elected at future scheduled municipal elections would be term limited by this amendment.
SECTION 2.01 NUMBER, SELECTION, TERM. Shall be amended as follows to include.
All public officials elected at large by the voters of the City of Loveland may only serve two (2) four-year (4) terms. The first election that will count towards the limit will take place at the General Election in 2017. Any member of Council whose term does not expire in 2017 will be permitted to run for one (1) additional four-year (4) term regardless of the number of terms currently served.
SUMMARY:
The Current Charter does not set a limit on the number of terms that an elected public official may serve. If approved, this amendment revises the Charter so that any elected public official elected at large by the voters of the City of Loveland may only serve two (2) four-year (4) terms. The first election that will count towards the limit will take place at the General Election in 2017. Any member of Council whose term does not expire in 2017 will be permitted to run for one (1) additional four-year (4) term regardless of the number of terms currently served.
