The City Council, by ordinance, may assign additional functions or duties to offices, departments or agencies established by this Charter, but may not discontinue or assign to any other office, department or agency any function or duty assigned by this Charter to a particular office, department or agency.
Where the positions are not incompatible, the City Council may combine in one person the powers and duties of two or more offices created or provided for in the Charter. No office provided in this Charter to be filled by appointment by the City Manager may be combined with an office provided in this Charter to be filled by appointment by the City Council.
However, the City Council may transfer or consolidate functions of the City government to or with appropriate functions of the State or County government, or may make use of such functions of the State or County government. In such case, the provisions of this Charter providing for the function of the City government so transferred or consolidated are suspended, and shall be covered by ordinance or resolution establishing such transfer or consolidation. Any such transfer or consolidation may be repealed in like manner.
