If the Charter or Code or

Count the day after the event as the first day of the period, if the
period follows an event.
(2)
Count the remaining number of days in the period. However, if
the period is 7 days or less, omit Saturdays, Sundays, and legal
holidays.
(3) Do not count the last day if it is a Saturday, Sunday, or legal
holiday or if the office where the person must file a paper or
perform an act is not open during the regular hours of that office.
