Bay Harbor Islands voters went to the polls Tuesday to elect two members to the Town Council. In the three-way at-large race, the two top finishers were incumbent Stephanie Bruder and former Miami Beach Police Lt. Kelly Reid, who was elected to her first term.

David F. Anderson placed third.

The election in the town of 6,000 residents drew a turnout of just over 24 percent.

Town council memebrs are elected to four-year terms.

One issue in the election was the "transfer of developing rights," or TDRs. TDRs essentially allow landowners to sell their right to build tall buildings on their property. The result is less development on the seller's land but potentially a bigger building on theland of the TDR's buyer.
