Any vacancy in the Council shall be filled temporarily by appointment by a majority of the remaining members of the Council, and then by the voters for the remainder of the term at the next regular Municipal election, unless that election occurs within sixty (60) days, the period necessary to allow time for candidates to file, then at the subsequent regular Municipal election. The term of the person chosen at such election to succeed such appointee for any unexpired term shall begin at the first regular Council meeting in December following the election and shall continue for the remainder of such unexpired term. If the Council fails to fill a vacancy within sixty (60) days, a special election will be called by Council. However, the term of a member shall not be lengthened by resignation and subsequent appointment. Any vacancy in the office of President of Council shall be filled by a member elected by the majority of the members of Council.
