If a recall petition or supplemental petition shall be certified by the Clerk of Council to be sufficient he shall at once submit the same with his certificate to the Council and shall notify the officer sought to be recalled of such action. If the official whose removal is sought does not resign within five (5) days after such notice the Council shall thereupon order and fix a day for holding a recall election. Any such election shall be held not less than thirty (30) nor more than forty (40) days after the petition has been presented to the Clerk of Council, at the same times as any other general or special election held within such period, but if no such election is to be held within such period, the Council shall call a special recall election to be held within the time aforesaid. Such special recall election shall be submitted to the electors of the entire City of Berea if such officer to be recalled was elected by the electors of the entire City of Berea, and such recall election shall be submitted to the electors of a single ward if the officer to be recalled was elected by the electors of a single ward. The election authorities shall publish notice and make all arrangements for holding such election, which shall be conducted and the result thereof returned and declared in all respects as are the results of special municipal elections.
