Board & Commission Policy

Term Limits Policy
On May 4, 1999, the Burlington City Council adopted a policy setting term limits for members of the City's advisory boards and commissions. According to this new policy, new board members are eligible to serve up to three consecutive three-year terms (a total of nine years). The City Council reserves the right to extend appointments beyond this limit by one year on a year-by-year basis.

All current board members are also eligible to serve up to three additional consecutive terms, effective when their current term expires.

The Burlington-Alamance Airport Authority and the Burlington-Graham Board of Alcoholic Control, both of which were created by the State of North Carolina, are exempt from this new term limits policy.

Questions about the term limits policy may be directed to the Public Information Office at 222-5076.
