Amends Section 3.4 to refer to only a mayor's absence (was, absence or disability) during which the mayor pro tempore must perform mayoral duties. Amends Section 3.5 to require vacancies for elective offices to be filled pursuant to GS 160A-63 (was, general state law). Amends Section 3.6 to no longer provide for participation in board meetings by the mayor or commissioners via simultaneous communication to count for voting or forming a quorum.

Eliminates Section 6.4, which authorizes the town to issue revenue bonds payable from special assessments pursuant to GS Article 10, GS Chapter 160A. Eliminates Section 6.8, which authorizes the town to adopt an ordinance making it unlawful to create, maintain, or operate a junkyard within the town or the town's extraterritorial planning jurisdiction.
