   (A)   Grants, gifts, and programs. The City Council may accept state or federal grants for historic preservation purposes, may participate in state and federal programs that benefit historic preservation, and may accept public or private gifts for historic preservation purposes. The City Council may make the Commission, a standing committee, or other agency its duly appointed agent to accept and administer grants, gifts, and program responsibilities.
   (B)   Acquisition of historic resources. If all efforts by the Commission to preserve a resource fail, or if it is determined by the City Council that public ownership is most suitable, the City Council, if it considers the action to be in the public interest, may acquire the resource using public funds, public or private gifts, grants, or proceeds from the issuance of revenue bonds. The acquisition shall be based upon the recommendation of the Commission or standing committee. The Commission is responsible for maintaining publicly owned resources using public funds committed for that use by the City Council. Upon recommendation of the Commission, the City Council may sell resources acquired under this section with protective easements included in the property transfer documents, if appropriate.
