Each ordinance or resolution adopted by Council shall be attested by the Clerk of Council, who shall present it for approval or disapproval to the Mayor within 48 hours after passage by the Council.
If the Mayor approves such legislation, the Mayor shall sign it and file it with the Clerk of Council. If the Mayor disapproves such legislation, the Mayor shall return it with the objections in writing to the Clerk of Council within 10 days after it is presented to the Mayor by the Clerk, which objections shall be entered in full on the journal of Council.
If any ordinance or resolution is not returned by the Mayor within 10 days after it was presented to the Mayor, it shall become effective in the same manner as if the Mayor had signed it.
The Mayor may approve or disapprove the whole of any resolution or ordinance.
Upon the Mayor’s disapproval of any ordinance or resolution, the Council may, no later than at its next regular meeting, reconsider it, and if upon such reconsideration the ordinance, resolution or item is approved by at least two-thirds of the members of Council, it shall take effect notwithstanding the disapproval of the Mayor.
