Question: Should section be amended to provide that initiative petitions must be filed with the Clerk “during regular business hours?”

Proposed Language:

§ 51     Filing Petition

All papers comprising a petition shall be assembled and filed with the Clerk of the Council as one instrument during regular business hours. Within ten (10) days from the filing of a petition the Clerk shall ascertain whether it is signed by the required number of qualified electors. Upon the completion of the Clerk’s examination the Clerk shall endorse upon the petition a certificate of the result thereof.
