Allow City To Set Housing Authority Commission Term Length
Concerning the ability of a city's governing body to determine the length of terms for its housing authority commissioners.
2016 Regular Session
Previously, for those housing authorities not comprised exclusively of members of the city's governing body who are serving ex officio, housing authority commissioner terms were 5 years in length. The act allows the governing body to pass a resolution setting the length of commissioner terms; except that such terms shall not exceed 5 years. If the governing body does not pass such a resolution, the statutory term length of 5 years continues to apply.
