The City Council may, by ordinance or resolution, call a special election to vote upon amendments to the City charter or a new charter. When such a special election is called on charter amendments or a new charter proposed by resolution or ordinance of the City Council, the City Council shall, not less than ten (10) days prior to such election, by resolution or ordinance, order such special election and shall specify and set forth in such ordinance or resolution the date of such special election, the time and place of holding such election, a full and correct copy of the title and text of each measure to be so submitted with the numbers and form on which the ballot title will be printed on the official ballot, and shall also appoint in such resolution or ordinances judges and clerks of election; provided, however, if any special election be called and held at the same time that any state or county general, special or primary nominating election is held in the City, then and in that event, the City Council may designate the same polling places for each precinct, and the same persons as election officers for each precinct as those selected for such state or county election. (Ord. 1741 § 3, amended, 1972)
