Staggered elections. At the 2016 city council election, the mayor and one council member from each of the following districts will be elected: District 2, District 3, and District 4. At the 2018 city council election, one council member from each of the following districts will be elected: District 1, District 5, and District 6. Thereafter, the election for municipal office will be held during the final year of the term of office of the then-incumbent council member. The mayor of the city shall be directly elected at large by all of the qualified electors of the city.
