AN ACT EXTENDING THE TERMS OF OFFICE FROM TWO TO FOUR YEARS FOR MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS IN THE TOWN OF BETHEL BEGINNING IN 2021.
House committee substitute to the 1st edition makes the following changes.
Further amends the Bethel Town Charter to specify that beginning in 2021, regular municipal elections are to be held quadrennially and conducted in accordance with general laws governing municipal elections. Provides for the mayor and commissioners to be elected to four-year terms, rather than to hold office for four-year terms, beginning in 2021. No longer specifically requires for a general municipal election to be held on the first Monday in May 2021, to elect the mayor and commissioners. Makes technical changes.
