Term limits extended in City of Yonkers

YONKERS – Mayor Michael Spano signed legislation on Tuesday that extends the length of term limits.

The legislation was approved last week by the city council by a 5-2 vote, and brings the Yonkers term limits law into conformity with the Westchester County law, which allows office holders to serve up to 12 years consecutively. Until now, term limits in the city wee eight years.

“The city will have continuity and also reasonable term limits,” Spano said. “It’s good for the county government, and it makes sense for Yonkers.”
