Article 18, Section 18.06 shall be amended, as follows:

By deleting from Section 18.06 the last two paragraphs in their entirety and substituting in lieu thereof the following new paragraphs:

"The council may reject the proposed ordinance for redistricting, in which event, by resolution, adopted by a two-thirds vote of the membership of the council, the council may adopt its own plan for redistricting. Upon approval of the resolution by the mayor, or passage over his veto, redistricting shall be accomplished and district council members shall be elected accordingly at the next general election.
At the expiration of ninety (90) days subsequent to the receipt by the council of an ordinance of redistricting, as hereinbefore provided, if such ordinance or alternative resolution shall not have become effective, then the members of the council shall not receive any further salaries until they take one action or the other."


Amendment No. _______

This amendment would allow the council to adopt a redistricting plan for council districts and districts for members of the board of public education other than the plan submitted by the metropolitan planning commission without the necessity of submitting such plans for public referendum.
