The Mayor, upon recommendation of the City Council, may appoint rural representatives, whose duties will be as directed by the Mayor in conformity with existing laws and city ordinances."

    Sec. 2. Section eleven of the same Act, as amended by Republic Act Numbered Fifteen hundred seventy-five and Republic Act Numbered Thirty-six hundred sixty-three, is further amended to read as follows:

The Council shall fix the time and place for its regular meetings, which shall be held twice in each week, and shall hold special sessions when called by the Mayor. Any meeting, regular or special, may, in case the amount of business shall require, be adjourned from day to day until the business is completed.
