Freeholders will be elected to a term of office from Nov. 27, 2013 to Dec. 31, 2014, or when a draft home rule charter for changes to Clark County government is submitted for a public vote, whichever comes first. Freeholders are not paid a salary.
A county charter could include options such as giving citizens initiative and referendum power, establishing a legislative body with five or more commissioners instead of the current three, making the board of commissioners strictly legislative, making changes to elected or appointed officers, requiring county government to adopt a binding code of ethics, and creating new county positions or departments.
