60. The death of a mayor or a councillor shall terminate his term of office.
The term of office of a mayor or councillor shall also terminate if he has failed to attend the sittings of the council during ninety consecutive days following the last sitting which he attended; if he has not attended any sitting since he has become a member of the council, the delay shall be computed from the first sitting which he could legally have attended; the term of office shall end upon the closing of the first sitting held after such ninety days unless, at such sitting, the council is of the opinion that it was in fact impossible for the person concerned to attend the sittings. Nevertheless, if the person concerned does not attend any sitting of the council within thirty days following the sitting at which the council expressed such opinion, his term of office shall terminate on the thirtieth day; the clerk shall so inform the council at the first sitting following such thirtieth day.
