Cities with a General Law Mayor-Aldermanic charter that are also located in a county with a charter form of government may establish term limits for the mayor and aldermen by adopting an ordinance by 2/3 vote at two separate meetings. The ordinance does not become operative until it is approved by the majority in an election. T.C.A. § 6-3-110; Acts 2010, Chapter 999.
