The bruising debate over term limits is not over — yet.
Starting at 9:30 a.m. on Monday at City Hall, members of the public will be given two minutes each to tell Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, face to face, why they favor or oppose legislation that would permit him to seek a third term. It is not known how long the hearing will last.
It will be the first time that Mr. Bloomberg will be present for a public hearing on the legislation, which will allow him and dozens of elected officials in the city to serve 12 years, rather than 8. New York voters approved the current term limits in two public referendums in the 1990s.
Mr. Bloomberg will listen to the discussion during a bill-signing ceremony. By the end of the hearing, the mayor is expected to sign the term-limits legislation, which was passed by the City Council, into law.
