(Amended ) Section 14. Effective Date of Ordinances and Resolutions. (a) Each ordinance or resolution providing for the appropriation of money or for an annual tax levy, or for improvements petitioned for by the owners of property to be benefited and specially assessed therefor, and any emergency ordinance or resolution necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health and safety, shall take effect, unless a later date is specified therein, upon its approval by the Mayor, or upon the expiration of the time within which it may be vetoed by the Mayor, or upon its passage after veto by the Mayor, as the case may be. (b) No other ordinance or resolution shall become effective until thirty (30) days after its approval by the Mayor, or upon the expiration of the time within which it may be vetoed by the Mayor, or upon its passage after veto by the Mayor, as the case may be. (c) Each emergency measure shall contain a statement of the necessity for such emergency action, and shall require the affirmative vote of three-fourths (3/4) of the membership of the legislative authority for the suspension of rules. No Action of Council authorizing the surrender or joint exercise of any of its powers, or granting, extending or renewing any franchise, or contracting for the supply to the Municipality or its inhabitants of the product or service of any utility, whether Municipally owned or not, shall be designated an emergency measure or enacted under suspension of the rules. (Amended ) Section 15. Enactment of Zoning Ordinances and Regulations. The Council may provide by ordinance for the procedure for the passage and amendment of any zoning ordinance, the maps and regulations thereof and the publication of notice and public hearing thereof, provided that the minimum notice of the time and place of such public hearing shall be published in a newspaper of general circulation in the Municipality. In the event it is proposed to amend, enlarge or change any area, zone or district classification defined in an enacted ordinance, then, in addition to the newspaper notice hereinbefore provided, notice of the time and place of such public hearing shall be given by first class mail, postage prepaid, ten (10) days before such hearing, to the record title holders of the property immediately adjacent, adjoining and abutting on such area, zone or district proposed to be changed. Record title holder shall mean the title holder of such property as disclosed by the records of the Auditor of Lorain County, Ohio, thirty (30) days immediately prior to the date of such public hearing. If the mailing address of such record title holder cannot be reasonably ascertained, then the aforesaid newspaper notice of such hearing shall be deemed adequate notice. Nothing herein provided shall be construed as limiting the power of the Council from enlarging on such notice. Any legislation which would amend, enlarge or change any area, zone or district classifications shall not be passed as an emergency legislation. (Amended ) 6
