The Council shall have power to compel the attendance of witnesses and the production of documents and other evidence at any meeting of the body or of any of its committees under the procedure set forth in Article XVI, Section 8, of the Act of June 25, 1919, P.L. 581.
Sources: Act of June 25, 1919, P.L. 581, Article XVI. Section 8.
Purposes: This section retains with full force and effect the above section of the Charter of 1919 for the purpose of preserving the power of the Council to subpoena witnesses, documents, and other evidence. A new provision on the subject was not written into the Charter because the enabling Act did not vest in the Charter Commission the power to impose upon the courts the duty of enforcing subpoenas issued by the Council.
