The Council shall be the judge of the election of its members. A majority of all members shall be a quorum to do business; a number less than a majority may adjourn from day to day and compel the attendance of absent members in such manner and under such penalties as may be prescribed by ordinance. The affirmative vote of a majority of the members of the Council shall be necessary to adopt an ordinance or resolution. Whenever the vote of the Council on an ordinance or resolution results in a three-to-three vote, the Mayor may vote to break such tie. The vote upon the passage of all ordinances and upon the adoption of such resolutions as the Council by its rules prescribe, shall be taken by “yeas” and “nays” and entered upon the journal. (Amended November 8, 1988: amended November 3, 1964)
