Such proposal must be made by resolution of the board of directors passed by a procedure outlined in its charter at a regular or special meeting of which thirty days’ advance written notice was given. Information regarding a proposed charter amendment shall be provided to members of the board of directors two weeks prior to the meeting at which a vote will be taken and shall include the proposed amendment and a statement of its purpose and effect.
  2. After adoption of a proposed charter amendment by the board of directors, the authority shall file three complete copies of the charter with the clerk. One copy shall be in a format that strikes over material to be deleted and underlines new material. The charter may be amended only by ordinance. If the city council approves the proposed amendment, the revised charter shall be issued in duplicate originals, each bearing the City’s official seal and attested by the clerk. One original and the underlined and over-stricken copy shall be retained by the clerk as a public record and the other original shall be delivered to the authority. A charter amendment proposed by the authority shall take effect and become a part of the charter upon issuance of the revised charter by the clerk.
  3. When required by law, the authority shall propose to the city council an amendment to the authority’s charter that will conform with said law. As necessary and appropriate, the city council may amend the authority charter by ordinance.
