Latest version.
  • All official acts of the City Council, except those pertaining to its own organization, rules, and procedures, are subject to the consideration and approval of the Mayor. Within five days of such presentation (Sundays excepted), the Mayor must either: 1) approve and sign the action(s); or 2) veto the action(s) and return the same together with the Mayor's objections thereto to the City Clerk. If the Mayor returns any ordinance, resolution, or other act of the City Council within the allotted five-day period without having signed the same, it shall be deemed to have been approved without the Mayor's signature.
