(A) No ordinance shall be consider for passage by the Common Council on the same day, or at the same meeting that it is introduced, except by unanimous consent of the members present. No ordinance may be passed on the same day without a two-thirds vote of the entire membership.
(B) All rezoning ordinances which have had a public hearing before the Advisory Plan Commission and further received the recommendation of the Advisory Plan Commission must be placed to second reading, before the rules can be suspended by a majority vote to all Council members present, and in lieu of a public hearing, the City Clerk must post a copy of the proposed zoning ordinance change on the bulletin board outside the City Clerk's office at the Marion Municipal Building for the benefit of the general public. This provision does not prevent Common Council action of requiring a public hearing on any rezoning ordinance.
