Bill summary

Senate committee substitute makes the following changes to the 1st edition. 

Eliminates the proposed changes to Sections 13.2 and 13.3 of the Charter of the City of Durham, SL 1975-671, as amended, and replaces them with the following. Authorizes the City Council to appoint a qualified person to fill a vacancy in the office of Mayor or a member of City Council within 120 days of the vacancy (current law requires appointment and grants a 60 day period). Requires the City Council to adopt a resolution calling a special election to fill the vacancy, barring the City Council from making the appointment, if the City Council does not appoint an individual within 120 days (similar to existing procedure). Makes conforming changes.
