The Seward City Council isn’t relying on word of mouth to educate voters on the importance of extending the terms of those elected to the city’s governing body by a year. It’s taking the message to the people.

Members of the council approved a resolution at their last meeting authorizing the administration to publish information in the local paper regarding the upcoming October 3 elections. Specifically, the information will be about Resolution 2017-045 which seeks voters’ approval to alter the City Charter to allow for 3-year terms on the city council, a move that would alleviate a dramatic turnover every other year by staggering the expiring terms. The proposal would have two terms expiring each year.

This October, the council is dealing with the potential replacement of three members, as well as the mayor.
