BIG SPRING - The issue of term limits for Big Spring City Council members will appear on the May 14 ballot for voter approval after the City Council voted unanimously Monday night to approve the petition put forth by a local group.
The petition was turned in last week and the city secretary's office spent much of last week validating over 700 signatures. The petition needed 511 names and 583 were validated, according to City Secretary Peggy Walker. Because the petition was validated, the City Council is bound to perform their statutory duty and place the item on the ballot.
