WHEREAS, the Charter Review Commission made its recommendation on June 1, 2011, to amend Section 4.02 of the Charter as set forth in Sections 1 and 2 of this Ordinance;
NOW THEREFORE BE IT ORDAINED by the Council of the Village of Granville, Ohio, upon a two-thirds vote of the members of Council as required by Section 10.10 of the Village Charter and the Ohio Constitution, that:

Section 2: SECTION 4.02 QUALIFICATIONS OF MANAGER
Council shall choose the Manager solely on the basis of his or her executive and administrative qualifications in the profession of management, as judged by the adequacy of his or her technical training or successful experience in administration, or both. At the time of appointment, the Manager need not be a resident of the municipality, but during his or her tenure of office, he or she shall reside in the municipality, unless authorized by Council to reside elsewhere. Forty percent (40%) of the manager’s salary shall be deemed a housing allowance to be paid only if and when the Manager resides within the Village of Granville. The Manager shall serve for an indefinite term at will – at the discretion of Council – and no contract shall be entered into between Council and the Village Manager that requires Council to employ the Village Manager for a specified period. No contract provision shall be placed in the Manager’s contract which would require a buyout of his or her contract if Council desires no longer to retain the Manager.
Section 3: This amendment shall be placed before the electors of the Village of Granville, Ohio, at the November 8, 2011, election as provided in the Constitution and statutes of the State of Ohio.
Section 4: This Ordinance is hereby declared to be an emergency ordinance that is necessary for the public peace, safety, health, morals and welfare. The reason for such necessity is that immediate action is necessary in order to place the Ordinance on the ballot on November 8, 2011, under the time restrictions set forth in the statute and Ohio Constitution. Therefore, this Ordinance shall take effect immediately upon passage.
