356. The passing of every by-law must be preceded by a notice of motion given at a sitting by a council member.
The passing of a by-law must also, subject to the provisions of a special Act governing the filing, passing or tabling of a draft by-law, be preceded by the filing of a draft by-law by a council member at the same sitting as the one at which the notice of motion was given or at a different sitting.
As soon as possible after the draft by-law is filed, copies of it must be made available to the public.
The council must pass the by-law, with or without changes, at a different sitting than the one at which the notice of motion was given and the one at which the draft by-law was filed, and not earlier than the second day following the date on which the latter of those sittings was held.
At the beginning of the sitting at which the passing of the by-law will be considered, copies of the draft by-law must be made available to the public.
The clerk or a council member must, before the by-law is passed, mention its object and any differences between the draft by-law that was filed and the by-law being submitted for passing.
In addition, if the by-law involves an expenditure, the clerk or a council member must mention that fact as well as any mode of financing, payment or repayment of the expenditure.
Changes made to the by-law submitted for passing must not be such as to change the object of the by-law as specified in the draft by-law that was filed.
Any contravention of the first, second, fourth or eighth paragraph entails the nullity of the by-law.
