A.   All ordinances shall be typewritten or printed and presented to the council by a member at any regular or special meeting. Every such ordinance shall be read at the meetings of the council on three (3) different days. At each reading it shall be open to discussion and amendment or may be referred to a committee unless by majority vote other disposition is made. All ordinances which have been amended shall, after the second reading, be engrossed by the clerk as amended. On final passage the yeas and nays shall be called and recorded and a concurrence of a majority of the full council shall be required for passage; provided, however, that on the vote of one-half (1/2) plus one member of the council may dispense with the portion of this section requiring all ordinances to be read on three (3) different days, and on the vote upon the motion to dispense with this rule the yeas and nays shall be called and recorded.
   B.   When any such ordinance is passed, it shall be signed by the clerk, and the date of its passage by the council shall be added thereto, and it shall within three (3) days thereafter be presented to the mayor, or, in case of his absence from the city, to the president of the council for his approval. If he approves the same, he shall attach his signature thereto. (Ord. 224 § 5, 1967)
