Ludington considering changing election years

May 5, 2014

LUDINGTON — Ludington City Council may move its city elections when it meets tonight for its regular meeting at 6:30 p.m. Recent changes in state law allows municipalities that hold elections in odd-numbered years to change their elections to even-numbered years to coincide with state and federal general elections.

Changing Ludington’s election years would save the city $15,100 per year. If the city approves the change, the terms of the current city councilors in wards 1, 3 and 5 and the at-large council seat and treasurer would extend from Dec. 31, 2015 to Dec. 31, 2016. The terms of the councilors in wards 2, 4 and 6, the mayor and city clerk would extend from Dec. 31, 2017 to Dec. 31, 2018.
