Seven members of the Council shall be elected at large in a manner as not to interfere with the terms of those ward members of the Council previously elected as set forth in Section 816 of the Pennsylvania Borough Code, 8 Pa.C.S.A. § 816, and as provided below:
A. 
At the first municipal election following the effective date of Ord. No. 1328, the electors of the Borough shall elect a sufficient number of members of the Council that, when added to the number of members of the Council already in office whose terms are not about to expire, will bring the membership of the Council to seven.
B. 
In addition, the following shall apply:
(1) 
The newly elected members of the Council shall serve for terms of four years from the first Monday of January following the first municipal election following the effective date of Ord. No. 1328. At the second municipal election after the effective date of Ord. No. 1328, the electors of the Borough shall elect a sufficient number of members of Council, that, when added to the number of members of the Council elected at the previous municipal election, shall bring the membership of the Council to its full complement of seven. If necessary, some of the members of the Council elected at the second municipal election shall serve for a four-year term from the first Monday of January following the municipal election, and the remainder shall serve for a two-year term, in an amount to bring the number to be elected in the Borough in succeeding municipal elections into conformity with the number elected in the other boroughs of the Commonwealth not divided into wards.
(2) 
In the third and all subsequent municipal elections following the effective date of Ord. No. 1328, the electors of the Borough shall elect three or four members of the Council, as the case may be, each to serve for a term of four years from the first Monday of January following the municipal election.
