Sources: Act of June 25, 1919, P.L. 581, Article XVI, Section 1.
Purposes: Any question as to the right of any administrative officer or of the Mayor to appear before Council or any of its committees is removed. The Mayor may appear to express his views on any matter before the Council, as at present, but administrative officers of the City may appear upon their own initiative only for the purpose of testifying on matters relating to the functions of their offices, a limitation that is necessary for effective harmony in the executive branch.
