Term of Office
The term of office of a Member elected to Council is approximately three years, commencing with the first regular meeting of Council immediately following the election.
Please note that if Council remains unconstituted after the results of the elections have been confirmed, newly elected Council members will begin their term at the next regular Council meeting. Until then, the Council member who currently holds that seat will continue their term.
A Member who has served on Council for nine consecutive years is ineligible for election to Council until a full three-year term has passed since that Member last served on Council.
