Whenever a local law after its passage by the Common Council shall be presented to the Mayor for approval, he shall forthwith fix a day for a public hearing concerning such local law and cause public notice of the time and place of such hearing to be given. Such notice shall be given by publication for two successive days in the official newspaper published in the City. Such hearing shall be held not earlier than five days after the day of the last publication of such notice. Such notice shall contain the title of the local law and either an explanatory statement concerning the same, or the full text of the law, as the Mayor may determine. The Mayor shall attend at the time and place appointed for such hearing and afford an opportunity for a public hearing concerning such local law.
