The Mayor and Council members are elected and serve for a three (3) year staggered term or until their successor has been elected and duly qualified. The Mayor and City Council members may not be elected for more than three (3) consecutive terms and must "sit out" for two (2) years prior to being eligible to run for the same elected office. Elections are held in May of each year, with not more than three places scheduled for any single year unless resignations occur.
