— The Raleigh City Council will hold a public hearing next month for feedback on a proposed change that would lengthen the terms for Raleigh's mayor and council members.

The hearing is scheduled for 7 p.m. Aug. 7 at the City Council Chamber at the Avery C. Upchurch Government Complex, at 222 W. Hargett St.

Currently, the terms are for two years each, but city leaders are considering whether to extend them to four years.
