Lake Worth voters are set to consider some changes to the way the City Commission and Mayor are elected on March 8.
Instituting term limits for Commissioners and the Mayor, electing Commissioners by district rather than by the whole city, and changing rules for Commission vacancies and run-off elections will be on the ballot.
The proposal would mean the Mayor and Commissioners would serve just two, three-year terms in a row. The question comes up after last year’s ousting of its three-term Mayor and two, four-term Commissioners, according to The Palm Beach Post.
More information is available on the city website.
