Current Bill Summary


SCS/SB 638 - Currently, the term of office for a mayor of a fourth-class city is two years, unless the board of aldermen pass an ordinance to lengthen the term to four years. This allows the board of aldermen to lengthen the term to three or four years. However, in any city with not less than 20,000 inhabitants in St. Louis County the term of mayor shall be four years.

This act is similar to a provision of CCS/HCS/SS/SCS/SB 22 (2007) & SS/SCS/HB 69 (2007).
