AMITE, La. (AP) - Voters in Tangipahoa Parish will likely be given the opportunity to decide whether the parish president and council members should be limited to three consecutive four-year terms.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1zXht1n ) the Tangipahoa Parish Council on Monday introduced and set for public hearing an ordinance that, if approved at the May 25 meeting, would place the term-limit issue before the voters on Oct. 24.

The measure passed on a split 7-3 vote.

The latest version of the proposal would require that voters decide on a single ballot whether or not the parish president and council members should be limited to the three terms.

Other proposals would have separated the parish president limit proposal from the Parish Council limit proposal.
