§ 5-1000. Powers and Duties in General.
   Except as otherwise specifically provided in this charter, the Department of Licenses and Inspections shall exercise the powers and perform the duties relating to licensing and inspection formerly exercised and performed by all officers, departments, boards and commissions of the City and such other powers and duties as are imposed or conferred upon it by this charter or by ordinance.
   Sources:   No specific source.
   Purposes:   The issuance of licenses and the performance of inspection functions by various agencies of the City government have resulted in inconvenience to the public, loss of revenue, lack of uniformity in procedures, and the absence of any effective over-all supervision and control. To remedy such conditions, one Department of Licenses and Inspections is created which is to issue all licenses required to be obtained from the City and ultimately to conduct all City inspection functions.
