Board to consider term limits for mayor, aldermen


The Collierville Board of Mayor and Aldermen will consider a resolution that would limit the terms of local elected officials.

Board members will vote Monday night to amend the Town Charter so that elected officials can serve no more than three terms.

Currently, the Town Charter states that the “Mayor and Aldermen shall be eligible for re-election,” allowing town officials to be elected to an unlimited number of terms.

A resolution to the Charter would provide for a limit of three total elected terms for the mayor and aldermen.

The resolution must be approved by the Tennessee Legislature.

If adopted, it would begin after the 2018 town election.
