Amendments to this Charter may be submitted to the electors of the City by a two-thirds vote of the Council, and upon petition signed by 10% of the electors of the City, setting forth any such proposed amendment, shall be submitted by such Council. The ordinance providing for the submission of any such amendment shall require that it be submitted to the electors at the next regular municipal election if one shall occur not less than 60 nor more than 120 days after its passage; otherwise it shall provide for the submission of the amendment at a special election to be called and held within the time aforesaid. Not less than 30 days prior to such election, the Clerk of the Council may mail a copy of the proposed amendment to each elector whose name appears upon the poll or registration books of the last regular municipal or general election, or, pursuant to laws passed by the general assembly, notice of such proposed amendments may be given by newspaper advertising. If such proposed amendment is approved by a majority of the electors voting thereon, it shall become a part of the Charter at the time fixed therein.
