   (a)   Except for the purpose of inquiry, the Council and its members shall deal with the administrative service solely through the City Manager, and neither the Council nor any member thereof shall give orders to any subordinate of the City Manager either publicly or privately. Any violation of the provisions of this section by a Councilman shall constitute misconduct in office.
   (b)   There shall be no standing committees of the Council.
   (c)   The Council shall not have the power to make any contract with or give any official position to any person who is in default to the City. Further, the Council shall not have the power to sell any park, cemetery, or any part thereof, except where such park is not required under an official master plan of the City, or engage in any business enterprise requiring an investment of money in excess of ten cents per capita, unless approved by three-fifths of the electors voting thereon at any general or special election. Except as otherwise provided in this Charter, no ordinance or resolution shall be adopted or passed except by the affirmative vote of at least four members of the Council.
