Portage Co. Issue 17 Streetsboro City Charter Amendment – Emergency ordinance or resolution
Amendment to Section 4.14 to provide that an emergency ordinance or resolution that receives a simple majority affirmative vote, but less than a supermajority of 75% of the Council, will be deemed to have passed as if it had no emergency clause. The charter provides that an ordinance or resolution without an emergency provision requires a 30-day waiting period before becoming effective. An emergency ordinance or resolution becomes effective immediately if it receives a 75% affirmative vote of Council. This amendment would allow an emergency ordinance or resolution that receive a majority of affirmative votes but less than 75% to be considered a non-emergency ordinance/resolution and to become effective after the 30-day waiting period.
