Whitewood Looks to Set Term Lengths for Elected Officials

The City of Whitewood is looking to create term limits for its elected officials, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. Currently, the city does not have an ordinance concerning term lengths, although two years has been the standard.

The city council is considering an ordinance which would establish a four-year term for the mayor and two council members from each ward for three year terms. The longer terms were proposed in an effort to help reduce costs for the city and allow council members more time to become familiar with their duties.
