[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Board of the Town of Martinsburg as indicated in article histories. Amendments noted where applicable.]
[Adopted 4-19-2006 by L.L. No. 7-2006]
The Town Board of the Town of Martinsburg finds that certain key elective positions within the Town such as the Town Clerk would benefit from a longer term of office so as to provide greater continuity for the Town. This position requires a greater amount of skill and knowledge than other elective offices of the Town and therefore there is a greater need for a longer term. It is the purpose of this article to expand the term of office for the Town Clerk from two years to four years.
The Town Board of the Town of Martinsburg hereby states that henceforth the term of office for the Town Clerk shall be four years.
