AMENDMENTS TO CHARTER
(GENERAL PROVISIONS)
   The Council may, by the affirmative vote of at least five (5) of its members, submit to the electors any proposed amendment to this Charter; or, upon receipt of a petition signed by not less than ten percent (10%) of the registered electors of the Municipality setting forth any proposed amendment to this Charter, it shall submit such proposed amendment to the electors in accordance with the laws of the State of Ohio. The Council shall determine the manner of the submission of any proposed amendment to the electors to the extent that such submission is not governed by the Constitution and the laws of the State of Ohio. If any such proposed amendment shall be approved by a majority of the electors voting thereon, it shall become a part of this Charter and shall become operative and effective on the first day of January following its approval unless otherwise provided at the time of submission to the electors; except that, if two or more inconsistent proposed amendments on the same subject shall be submitted at the same election, only the one of such amendments receiving the largest affirmative vote, not less than a majority, shall become a part of this Charter.
