Here is the code...
Powers as to ordinances and resolutions, veto power. The mayor has power to:
Cause the ordinances of the city or town to be executed;
Approve all ordinances and resolutions of the council adopted by it;
Veto any objectionable part of a resolution or ordinance and approve the other parts. The veto of the mayor is subject to override by a two-thirds vote of the council.
Veto of ordinances. The veto power of the mayor as to ordinances must be exercised in writing prior to the next regularly scheduled meeting of the council. Whenever the mayor vetoes an ordinance, the council must act at the next regularly scheduled meeting to either override or confirm the veto. Whenever the veto is overridden or the mayor fails to act, the ordinance shall take effect.
Veto of resolutions. The veto power of the mayor as to resolutions must be exercised in writing at the next regular meeting. If the mayor fails to act, the resolution is approved. If the mayor vetoes a resolution, the governing body must act at the same meeting or its next regularly scheduled meeting to either override or confirm the veto. Whenever the veto is overridden or the mayor fails to act, the resolution shall take effect.
