The City Treasurer shall be elected in the manner and at the times provided by law but if and when the Constitution and laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania permit, he shall be appointed by the Director of Finance.
Sources: Act of June 25, 1919, P.L. 581, Article XI, Section 1.
Purposes: The City Treasurer is retained as an elected officer for the present. If the Constitution is amended and the laws of the Commonwealth permit, the City Treasurer is to be appointed by the Director of Finance because the Treasurer's functions are primarily ministerial under the Charter. They are necessarily a part of the broader functions and operations of the office of the Director of Finance and the City Treasurer should serve as a part of the Director's organization.
