Term Limitations

Because it is the intent of Cass County Government to promote citizen input on local county issues, the Board of Commissioners hereby establishes limitations on all board appointments.

The term limitation schedule for board appointments shall be as follows:

  • 6 year term - no more than 2 successive appointments
  • 5 year term - no more than 2 successive appointments
  • 4 year term - no more than 2 successive appointments
  • 3 year term - no more than 2 successive appointments
  • 2 year term - no more than 3 successive appointments
  • 1 year term - no more than 4 successive appointments

The intent of this resolution is to apply this schedule retroactively as terms become available when considering re-appointments. However, no current appointments will be changed unless a vacancy occurs.

Further, this board declares it will consider eliminating any board in which board appointments remain vacant due to a lack of interest from board applicants. However, if the only applicant is an incumbent, the Commission can vote to waive the term limitation schedule.

The only exception to the term limit schedule shall be for water resource board membership. Terms for water resource boards are not limited.
