Should the City Charter be amended to provide that City Commissioners shall serve four (4) year terms instead of three (3) year terms and City elections held every two (2) years in conjunction with county, state and federal elections which will mean the Mayor serves for two (2) years unless removed sooner by majority vote of City Commission?

Question No. 2 Commission Annual Meeting
Should the City Charter be amended to repeal Section 18 regarding the date of the annual organizational meeting and monthly meetings throughout the year since it is redundant and already included in the City Code of Ordinances?
