Mayor Bloomberg is considering extending term limits through a deal with the City Council that would allow him another four years, while also boosting lawmakers’ time in office, sources told The Post.

 

Bloomberg has publicly said he intends to leave when his term ends on Dec. 31, 2009, but has privately expressed interest in undoing the city’s cap of two four-year terms with a legislative change, not a public referendum, sources said.

 

Bloomberg has recently indicated he believes he has plenty of time next year to work out an arrangement with the council, sources said. “It’s more ‘yes’ than ‘no’ right now,” a source said. “They think they have time to wait until after the [November] election.”

 

Extending term limits through legislation could be controversial, because some believe they can be changed only through a public referendum.

 

The Post first reported in April that Bloomberg was contemplating a move on term limits.

Bloomberg and council Speaker Christine Quinn both denied a deal is being considered.

“As the mayor has said again and again, and as recently as yesterday, he expects to serve out his second term, and then turn the office over to someone else,” Bloomberg spokesman Stu Loeser said.

 

Quinn “has never spoken to the mayor or anyone in this administration about this,” said her spokesman, Jamie McShane.
