2 Propositions on Suffolk County Ballot

Suffolk County voters will have two propositions before them this year. Both are printed on the back of the ballot.

Proposition I would double the length of office of Suffolk County legislators from two to four years.  The 18 legislators would still be limited to a total of 12 years in the legislature. any change in length of terms would go into effect in January 2022 and would apply to all 18 legislators elected next year.

Proposition II would allow Suffolk County to avoid repaying $183 million of what it borrowed from the Drinking Water Protection Program, citing the fiscal stress related to the Covid-19 crisis. The county has been ordered by a court to return the money.

Both are yes or no choices.
