A vacancy in the council shall be deemed to exist for any reason stated in State Statutes, and for continuous absence from the city for more than three months, or by reason of the failure of any council member without good cause to perform any of the duties of membership in the council for a period of three months. These provisions do not pertain to the provisions for recall as outlined in chapter 5 of this Charter. In each such case the council shall by resolution declare such vacancy to exist and shall forthwith appoint an eligible person to fill the same until the next regular municipal election, when the office shall be filled for the unexpired term.
