Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

The City of Monroe is considering the adoption of an ordinance establishing term limits for the positions of Mayor and Council Member. The proposed ordinance would generally prohibit these officials from serving more than eight total years in the same office, but would allow limited exceptions for certain vacancy appointments and situations where eight consecutive years have lapsed since the end of the official’s most recent term. Should this ordinance be enacted into law?[3]
