(A)   If the Mayor is temporarily absent because of an incapacity to perform official duties, but the incapacity does not create a vacancy in the office, the corporate authorities shall elect one of their members to act as Mayor Pro-Tem. The Mayor Pro-Tem, during this absence or disability, shall perform the duties and possess all the rights and powers of the Mayor but shall not be entitled to vote both as Mayor Pro-Tem and as a Trustee.
   (B)   In the absence of the Mayor, or Mayor Pro-Tem, the corporate authorities may elect one of their members to act as a temporary Chairperson. The temporary Chairperson shall have only the powers of a presiding officer and a right to vote only in the capacity as Trustee on any ordinance, resolution or motion.
