Phase-out of Supernumerary Programs in Lee County; Participation in Employees' Retirement System.
In Lee County, no person first taking public office after the effective date of this amendment may assume a supernumerary office.

No person may participate in both a supernumerary program and the Employees' Retirement System based on the same service.
