[HISTORY: Adopted by the Borough Council of the Borough of Alpine as § 2-6 of the 1970 Revised General Ordinances. Amendments noted where applicable.]
All borough ordinances shall be submitted in writing at a meeting of the Council and passed at a subsequent meeting. No ordinance shall be finally passed except by the vote of a majority of the members of the Council present at the meeting, provided that at least three affirmative votes shall be required for such purpose, the Mayor to have no vote except in the case of a tie.
No ordinance shall be considered for final adoption until it has been advertised as required by law. The Borough Clerk shall be responsible for arranging for the advertising of proposed ordinances.
Every ordinance passed by the Council shall, within five days after its passage, Sundays excepted, be presented to the Mayor by the Borough Clerk, whose report shall be conclusive evidence that such ordinance has been so presented.
If an ordinance is approved by the Mayor he shall within five days, Sundays excepted, after its receipt by him, sign and file it with the Clerk.
If the Mayor does not approve an ordinance, he shall within five days, Sundays excepted, after its receipt by him, return the same to the Clerk with his objections in writing, and the Council shall at its next meeting cause the objections to be entered at length on its minutes, and proceed to reconsider the ordinance.
If any ordinance contains more than one distinct section, clause or item, the Mayor may approve one or more thereof and veto the rest.
If 2/3 of all the Councilmen at the next meeting as aforesaid, or at any subsequent meeting to which they shall postpone such reconsideration, shall vote to pass the ordinance or the vetoed part thereof over the veto of the Mayor, the ordinance shall take effect.
