Town's Ward System,
Length Of Terms Of
Aldermen And Mayor
Are Up For Discussion
BY SARAH GREGORY
At their regular meeting scheduled for Tuesday afternoon, the Greeneville Board of Mayor and Aldermen will consider an appointment and re-appointments to the Greeneville Historic Zoning Commission and a re-appointment to the Greeneville Light & Power System Board of Directors.
The appointments are the only action items on the agenda for the 4 p.m. meeting, which will be held at the Greeneville Light & Power System's G. Thomas Love Boardroom.
Immediately following the meeting, a third public workshop will be held to discuss proposed changes to the Town's charter.
Some of the changes up for discussion could have a major impact on the way Greeneville's government operates.
Discussion will focus on:
* removing wards or setting redistricting requirements;
* moving Election Day to coincide with the Greene County General Election; and
* lengthening the term of office for the mayor and aldermen to four years instead of the current two-year term.
Mayor W.T. Daniels has said at past meetings of the board and in public workshops that he hopes citizens will take the opportunity to listen to proposed changes and offer input.
The workshop discussions regarding proposed changes are facilitated by City Administrator Todd Smith.
