Crossword Genius

Three months in this district (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

quarter

I believe this is a double definition.

'three months' is the first definition.
(I've seen this before)

'this district' is the second definition.
(quarter is a kind of district)

'in' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for quarter that I've seen before include "Residence - mercy" , "Fourth; mercy" , "Neighbourhood" , "US coin" , "Fractional mercy towards opponent?" .)
