SECTION 3.  COUNCIL MEETINGS.
   In each calendar month, except July and August, the Council shall hold at least two regular meetings, the time and place of which shall be prescribed by ordinance.  During each of the months of July and August, the Council shall hold at least one regular meeting, the time and place of which shall be prescribed by ordinance. A majority of all the members elected shall constitute a quorum to do business, but a lesser number may adjourn from day to day and compel the attendance of absent members in such manner and under such penalties as are prescribed by ordinance.  The mayor or any three members of Council may call special meetings upon at least twelve hours' written notice to each member, served personally or left at his usual  place of residence.  Such notice shall state the subject or subjects to be considered at the meeting and no other subject shall be there considered.  Council meetings shall be open to the public at all times and no ordinance, resolution or other business shall be transacted by Council except at a public meeting.  Provided further, however, that Council may meet in executive sessions, closed to the public, to review and consider personnel matters, collective bargaining issues, sale or purchase of real estate, pending or imminent litigation or Court actions, and such other matters required or permitted to be kept confidential by Federal or State law, which executive sessions shall be held only pursuant to regulations adopted by ordinance.
