Why is district 1 & 3 have different term lengths?

I think all districts have 4 year terms but only two council members change at a time so they offset two districts to run longer for the initial election.

Just like the County Commissioners, Senator, Representatives.........so elections will be staggered and not everyone running at the same time............

Part of the reasoning is that you do not have the possibility of all four council members being novices in one election year. You will always have the possibility of two council members having one year experience and two brand new and learning the ropes.
