LUDINGTON — Ludington city councilors approved extending their terms by one year Monday night. However, the move is expected to save the city thousands of dollars each year. 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 will save the city $15,100 per year. The move meant that terms of elected officials would need to be changed. The city councilors in wards 1, 3 and 5 and the at-large council seat and treasurer will 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 will extend from Dec. 31, 2017 to Dec. 31, 2018.
