Every proposed ordinance or resolution shall be introduced in written or printed form and shall not contain more than one subject, but the general appropriation resolution may contain the various subjects and accounts for which monies are to be appropriated. The enacting clause of all ordinances shall be “Be it Enacted by the City of Pompano Beach, Florida.” No ordinance shall be passed until it shall have been read at two meetings, not less than one week apart; provided, however, that if the City Commission, by majority vote, declares an emergency to dispense with the necessity for such readings, an ordinance may be passed on both readings at the same meeting if, upon the second reading thereof, four affirmative votes are cast in favor of the passage thereof. Any ordinance may be read by title only upon its second reading.
