This Charter may be amended by either of two methods. The Council may, by an affirmative vote of at least five (5) of its members, submit to the electors any proposed amendment or amendments to this Charter; or, upon petition signed by not less than ten percent (10%) of the electors of the City setting forth any proposed amendment or amendments to this Charter, the Council shall submit such proposed amendment or amendments to the electors in accordance, in each instance, with the provisions of the Constitution of the State of Ohio now or hereafter in effect. The Council shall determine the manner of submission of any proposed amendment or amendments to the electors to the extent that such submission is not governed by this Charter or the Constitution of the State of Ohio.
If any such proposed amendment or amendments shall be approved by a majority of the electors voting thereon, it or they shall become a part of this Charter; except that if two or more inconsistent proposed amendments on the same subject shall be so approved at the same election, only the one of such amendments receiving the largest affirmative vote shall become a part of the Charter.
