SECTION 2100.3. Ordinances and Resolutions. Adoption. <br />When the complete title of a resolution or ordinance has been <br />set forth on the agenda so that any person in attendance may <br />read the same, such inclusion shall be considered as having the <br />same effect as though the title of the resolution or ordinance <br />had been read aloud at the regular meeting at the time the <br />resolution or ordinance was being considered for adoption. <br />When two or more ordinances are being considered to be passed <br />to second reading or are being considered for adoption, or when <br />two or more resolutions are being considered for adoption, such <br />action, in any one of said three situations, may be taken by <br />one roll call vote and said vote shall be deemed to have been <br />given to each ordinance or resolution in that particular group <br />as though it had been voted upon individually. <br />Whenever a motion is made to pass two or more ordinances to <br />second reading or to adopt two or more ordinances or resolutions, <br />which motion provides that the vote thereon shall be deemed to <br />have been given to each ordinance or resolution as though the <br />same had been voted upon individually, any member of the Council <br />may request that one or more of the resolutions or ordinances be <br />dropped from the motion to be considered by the Council individu- <br />ally, and such a request shall be deemed a matter of right. In <br />such a case, the motion shall be withdrawn_ by the mover and a <br />new motion may be made for such group consideration which must <br />omit each ordinance or resolution regarding which such a request <br />has been made. <br />SECTION 2100.4.
