The Department of Collections shall assign its own employees to any department, in addition to the Department of Licenses and Inspections, and to any board and commission which receives money due to the City with regularity and in such volume as to warrant the full-time assignment of such employees. In any case in which any such department or any board or commission shall receive City money irregularly and in volume not sufficient to warrant the assignment of employees of the Department to such other department, board or commission, the Department shall designate one or more of the employees of such other department, board or commission as the agents of the Department who may receive money on behalf of the City. Such agents shall be appropriately bonded, shall issue official receipts for any money received by them, and shall daily transmit to the Department all moneys received, together with copies in duplicate of the receipts issued by them. The Department shall retain one copy of all such receipts, and shall forthwith deliver to the Auditing Department the other copy.

Strict accounting requirements are imposed in such instances and the employee must be appropriately bonded.
