Unless someone on the Riverhead Town Board changes their mind, a term-limit proposal isn’t coming to Town Hall anytime soon.
A resolution setting a public hearing to discuss establishing a 12-year term limit for the town supervisor and council positions failed by 3-2 vote at Tuesday’s Town Board meeting.
Supervisor Sean Walter and Councilman George Gabrielsen voted in favor. Council members John Dunleavy, Jodi Giglio and Jim Wooten cast “no” votes.
