Clarksville Council Debates Term Limits
By Casey Northcutt
Clarksville, TN – The Clarksville City Council debated term limits for its members last night. City Chief of Staff Jim Durrett says while reviewing a new draft of their charter, council members sparred on whether or not they should keep the item limiting their service to three consecutive terms. The committee that reviewed the old charter and composed the new draft originally removed the limits, but when the council met last night to evaluate the changes, it debated the wisdom of that decision. Durrett says some felt members should serve as long as their constituents wanted them in office, but others believed forced turnover would bring fresh ideas to the local government. In the end, they reinstated term limits into the draft.
