Section 2.08 Vacancies
   If a vacancy occurs on Council and within thirty (30) days thereafter, those Central Committee members living in the City, from the same political party as the vacated member at the time of his or her election or appointment to Council, may recommend to Council a person to fill the vacancy for the unexpired term. If a person is so recommended, he or she shall not become a Council member unless approved by Council. If no person is so recommended by such Central Committee members or if a person so recommended is not approved by Council, Council may select another replacement within fifteen (15) days. If Council fails to select another replacement within fifteen (15) days, the Mayor shall select a replacement. If the person to be replaced ran as an independent or third-party candidate at the time of his or her election or appointment, the replacement shall be selected by Council; but, if Council fails to select a replacement within thirty (30) days after the vacancy occurs, the Mayor shall select a replacement. If a vacancy date cannot be determined with a reasonable degree of certainty, then the vacancy date shall be as concluded by approved motion of Council. (Amended November 8, 2016)
