The Constitution and the general laws of Ohio shall govern the procedure for initiative and referendum.
No ordinance or resolution adopted by an electoral vote can be repealed or amended within one (1) year after its adoption except by an electoral vote. However, an ordinance or resolution to repeal or amend any such ordinance or resolution may be submitted to an electoral vote at any regular election, or at any special Municipal election called for some other purpose, provided that notice of the intention to do so be published by the Council not more than sixty (60) days nor less than thirty (30) days prior to such election, in the manner required for the publication of ordinances and resolutions. If an amendment is so proposed, such notice shall contain the proposed amendment in full. Such submission shall be in the same manner, and the notice shall have the same effect, as in cases of ordinances or resolutions submitted to an election by popular petition.
