The Council may, by affirmative vote of two-thirds (2/3) of its members, submit any proposed amendment to this Charter or a revised Charter or amended Charter to the electors. Amendments to this Charter shall also be submitted to the electors of the City by the Council when the Council receives a petition setting forth any such proposed amendment signed by qualified electors of a number not less than ten percent (10%) of the number of votes cast at the last preceding general municipal election. Such petitions shall be required to be filed in the manner and form prescribed herein for the submission of ordinances by initiative petition. The amendment shall be submitted to the electors at the next regular municipal election scheduled or otherwise in accordance with the laws and Constitution of the State of Ohio. Not less than thirty (30) days prior to such election, the Clerk of Council shall mail a copy of the proposed amendment or revised or amended Charter to each elector whose name appears in registration books of the last general or regular municipal election held in the Municipality, or give notice of the same in such other manner as may be provided by general law. If any such proposed amendment shall be approved by a majority of the electors voting thereon, it shall become a part of this Charter; except that, if two or more inconsistent proposed amendments on the same subject are 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.
