05 (d) Notwithstanding (b) of this section, a second class city may by ordinance
06 provide that the mayor is elected, from the council, by the voters rather than by the
07 council. If an ordinance is adopted under this subsection, the council shall meet on
08 the first Monday after certification of each regular election and elect a council member
09 to serve as mayor pro tempore who takes office immediately and exercises the powers
10 and duties of mayor until the permanent mayor takes office. Within 45 days after
11 certification of a regular election, a special election shall be held for the permanent
12 mayor. The permanent mayor takes office on the first Monday following certification
13 of the special election and serves until the first Monday after certification of the next
14 regular election. The term of a mayor in office on the effective date of an ordinance
01 adopted under this subsection may not be altered.
