- Charter Resolutions
Every charter resolution shall be published once each week for two consecutive weeks in the official county newspaper. A charter resolution shall take effect 60 days after final publication unless it is submitted to a referendum in which event it shall take effect when approved by a majority of the electors voting thereon.
19-101(c) If within 60 days of the final publication of a charter resolution, a petition signed by a number of electors of a county equal to not less than 2% of the number of electors who voted at the last preceding November general election or 100 electors, whichever is the greater, shall be filed in the office of the county election officer demanding that such resolution be submitted to a vote of the electors, it shall not take effect until submitted to a referendum and approved by the electors. An election if called, shall be called within 30 days and held within 90 days after the filing of the petition. The board, by resolution, shall call the election and fix the date. Such resolution shall be published once each week for three consecutive weeks in the official county newspaper, and the election shall be conducted in the same manner as are elections for officers of such county. The proposition shall be: "Shall charter resolution No. ______, entitled (title of resolution) take effect?" The board may submit any charter resolution to a referendum without petition in the same manner as charter resolutions are submitted upon petition, except elections shall be called within 30 days and held within 90 days after the first publication of the charter resolution. Each charter resolution which becomes effective shall be recorded by the county election officer in a book maintained for that purpose with a statement of the manner of adoption, and a certified copy shall be filed with the secretary of state, who shall keep an index of the same.
19-101(d) Each charter resolution passed shall control and prevail over any prior or subsequent act of the board and may be repealed or amended only by charter resolution or by an act of the legislature uniformly applicable to all counties.
