37. The mayor signs, seals and executes, in the name of the municipality, all by-laws, resolutions, obligations, contracts, agreements or deeds made and passed or ordered by the municipality which are presented to him for his signature after adoption by the council. If the mayor refuses to approve and sign the same, the secretary-treasurer submits them again for the consideration of the council at the next sitting. If a majority of the members of the council again approve such by-laws, resolutions, obligations, contracts, agreements or deeds, they are legal and valid as though they had been approved and signed by the mayor, notwithstanding his refusal.
