128. Once the public meeting on a draft by-law containing a provision making it a by-law subject to approval by way of referendum has been held, the council of the municipality shall adopt, with or without change, a second draft by-law. No such provision may be included in the second draft by-law unless it relates to a matter in respect of which such a provision was included in the first draft by-law.
However, the council is not bound to adopt a second draft by-law if the by-law it adopts under section 134 no longer contains any provision making it a by-law subject to approval by way of referendum.
As soon as practicable after the adoption of the second draft by-law, the clerk or secretary-treasurer of the municipality shall transmit a certified copy of the draft by-law and of the resolution by which it was adopted to the regional county municipality or, if the second draft by-law is identical to the first, a notice to that effect.
