Geneva voters will vote on proposed staggered terms for the City Council and mayor this November election.
The Geneva City Council plans to hold a public hearing on Wednesday, April 6 at 7 p.m. concerning the proposed staggered terms. The hearing will be held at the public safety building.
On Friday, April 8, the Council will vote on a resolution to bring the proposal before voters, according to Finger Lakes Times. The proposed changes require voter approval because it requires amending the City Charter.
The Council generally supports the proposal for staggered terms, which was first introduced by Mayor Steve Valentino in early 2022. The mayor and councilors are currently elected every four years to serve four-year terms. If approved, the staggered terms would begin with the 2023 election.
