The administration and control of the activities in and about the harbor and airplane landing fields of the City of Cleveland shall be vested in the Department of Port Control unless and to the extent that such facilities are conveyed to, or otherwise made available for use by, a port authority originally created jointly by the City and the County of Cuyahoga under authority of the laws of Ohio. No such facilities shall be conveyed to, or otherwise made available for use by, such a port authority except upon such terms and conditions as shall be approved by ordinance of the Council, including such consideration as the Council shall determine therein to be adequate. The Council shall have the authority to abolish the Department of Port Control and the office of the Director of Port Control as and when and for so long as all of the functions and duties of such Department and office are assumed and discharged by such port authority.
Subject to the foregoing provisions of this section, the Director of Port Control, through the appropriate divisions of the Department of Port Control, shall have charge of the administration and control of the harbor of the City of Cleveland and the docks, wharves, warehouse and transportation facilities in connection therewith, and of the management of the Municipally owned airport facilities of the City of Cleveland; and he shall perform such other duties consistent therewith as Council by ordinance may require.
