Section 11.  Powers.
   Among the powers hereby conferred on the Town Council they may borrow money or create a public debt for purposes other than necessary expenses of the town, only after they have passed an ordinance by a three-fourths vote of all the Council, at two separate regular meetings, submitting the question of creating a debt to the vote of the people, and a majority of the qualified registered voters have voted in favor thereof.  Thirty days' notice of the election shall be given in some newspaper published in Macon County, at which election those favoring the creation of the debt shall vote “Approved,” and those who oppose it shall vote “Not Approved.”  The Council may order a new registration at any and all elections if they deem it proper to do so.  They may provide water-works, provide for macadamizing, building, repairing, paving and cleaning streets and sidewalks, regulate markets and take all proper means to prevent and extinguish fires; to appoint and regulate a police force to execute the precepts as the Mayor or other person may issue to them; to preserve the peace and order of the town and to execute the ordinances of the town; to suppress and remove nuisances, preserve the health of the town from contagious or infectious diseases, and shall appoint and provide for the pay and prescribe the duties of all other officers as may be deemed necessary for the good order of the town.
