LIVINGSTON - The Livingston Parish Council is shopping for a new election date for a proposition on term limits after missing the deadline for the Nov. 8 ballot.

The proposal, which would limit the council members and parish president to three consecutive terms, missed the deadline for the presidential election ballot due to a "miscommunication."

Talbert proposed an ordinance to place the proposal on the March 25 ballot, but he added that the spring election date may be more costly for the parish if few items are on that ballot. He suggested the council introduce the ordinance Thursday, then amend the date.

But the item was deferred after two councilmen instead suggested waiting until after the council has settled on a new date before introducing the ordinance.
