(3) A petition or resolution proposing an optional form of county government may provide that an existing elected officer will continue in office until the end of the term for which he was elected or may provide that an existing elected officer will be retained as a county employee until the end of the term for which he was elected; provided that the person’s salary shall not be reduced except as part of a general salary reduction.
