A political Town Committee wants to censure a member for a vote on a Town Council.

What's the relationship between the Town Committee and the Town Council?

Is it a simple majority vote?

Yes, it requires a majority vote.

Is there any restriction on what can be said in the resolution?

Yes, but you specifically get more latitude in a motion to censure. Just be careful in deciding the meaning of, "as may be necessary," in the following citation.

"Except as may be necessary in the case of a motion of censure or a motion related to disciplinary procedures, a motion must not use language that reflects on a member's conduct or character, or is discourteous, unnecessarily harsh, or not allowed in debate." - RONR(10th ed.), p. 333, l. 1-8.
