(a) To prevent the delay of public business or to meet extraordinary exigencies, a department head may make temporary assignments or appointments within a department or to another department.
(b) If the temporary assignment or appointment is of an employee from one department to another department, it shall be with the consent of the head of the receiving department and at the discretion of the head of the transferring department, from those employees in the transferring department who are qualified to perform the assigned duties with the receiving department.
(c) When employees from other departments are temporarily assigned or appointed to another department under division (a) above, they shall be subject to the direction and supervision of the receiving department personnel only for the purposes of accomplishing the immediate required tasks and hours of work. Otherwise and for all other purposes, the temporarily assigned or appointed employees remain subject to the rules, regulations and rights of the department from which they were temporarily assigned. The temporarily assigned or appointed employees shall receive wages at their normal scale of pay with their normal employing department, when temporarily assigned to another department, which wages will be paid from the budget of the receiving department. Any overtime wages accrued, as defined by § 39.129, will be computed on the employee’s normal scale of pay with their normal employing department, and will be paid from the budget of the receiving department.
(d) In the specific implementation of this section, when a snow removal alert as defined in § 96.102 is declared, the department head of any department may temporarily assign or appoint to the public works department as many of the employees of that department as are available, or are required by the public works department for the purpose of efficient snow removal.
(e) Nothing in division (d) above shall prevent persons not presently employed by the city from being so temporarily assigned or appointed to a department under the provisions of division (a) above.
