All ordinances and resolutions passed by the City Commission shall be in effect fourteen (14) days from and after the date of their passage, except the City Commission may, by an affirmative vote of four (4) of its members, pass emergency measures to take effect at the time indicated therein.
   An emergency measure is an ordinance or resolution for the immediate preservation of the public peace, property, health or safety or providing for the usual daily operation of a municipal department, in which the emergency is set forth and defined in the preamble thereto.
   Ordinances appropriating money may be passed as emergency measures, but no measure making a grant, renewal or extension of a franchise or other special privilege, or regulating the rate to be charged for its service by any public utility, except modification or establishment of bus or transit routes shall ever be so passed.
