(a) If an alderman moves from the ward from which the alderman is elected, the alderman's
office is considered vacant.
(b) If a member of the governing body is absent for three regular consecutive meetings,
the member's office is considered vacant unless the member is sick or has first obtained
a leave of absence at a regular meeting.
(c) In addition to an absence described by Subsection (b), a member of a governing
body is also considered absent for the purposes of that subsection if the member is
not present at the adjournment of a meeting at which a quorum is established, unless
the member is first allowed to withdraw by the unanimous vote of the members present. This subsection applies only to a municipality that is located in a county with
a population of 800,000 or more that is adjacent to an international border.
