Sec. 3.08 REMOVAL.
   Council may remove a member of Council for gross misconduct; or malfeasance, misfeasance or nonfeasance in or disqualification for office; or for the conviction while in office of a crime involving moral turpitude; or for a violation of his oath of office; provided, however, that such removal shall not take place without the affirmative vote of five (5) members of Council after the member has been notified, in writing, of the charge against him at least fifteen days in advance of a public hearing upon such charge, and he or his counsel has been given an opportunity at such hearing to be heard, present evidence, and examine any witness appearing in support of the charge. In case of removal from office, the person so removed may appeal such removal to the Court of Common Pleas of Hamilton County. Such appeal shall be taken within ten days, and if so taken will stay any removal until final determination by the Court.
