Public Notice City of Troutdale Notice of Receipt of Ballot Title

Public Notice City of Troutdale Notice of Receipt of Ballot Title Notice is hereby given that a ballot title for an initiative petition has been filed with the City’s Election Official on May 4, 2018. The City Attorney has determined that the prospective initiative petition complies with the constitutional requirements. The ballot title is as follows: CAPTION: Limits City Council service to eight of twelve years, exceptions. QUESTION: Shall City limit Council service to eight of twelve years, except candidates exceeding votes for this measure in this election? SUMMARY: Currently, City Council members including mayor and councilors, serve as often and as long as elected. This measure amends the City Charter to limit the service of Council members to eight years in any twelve-year period. Twelve years starts when service starts, appointed or elected. Measure disqualifies a person from running for election to a Council position if the person is ineligible to serve the entire term. Measure also disqualifies any person from serving as appointed Council member for longer than eight years in a twelve-year period. This measure applies to all persons serving on council after December 31, 2018, but allows current Council members and others who served eight or more years of the last twelve years, to be candidates in 2018, and serve only if the person receives more votes than this measure receives. That is, a person receiving more voter support than this measure, may serve the term 2019-2022. Otherwise, next highest vote recipient is elected. Limit will apply to all later terms. Pursuant to ORS 250.296 any elector dissatisfied with this ballot title may file a petition for review of this ballot title in Multnomah County Circuit Court no later than 5:00pm on Tuesday, May 15, 2018. Petitions must be filed in accordance with the requirements of ORS 250.296. Any elector that files a petition must notify the City Elections Official in writing by 5:00pm on the day following the day the petition was filed. Sarah Skroch City Recorder Publish May 11, 2018.
