§ 220.03  COMMITTEES.
   Unless in any instance the City Council directs, the President may, from time to time, as he or she may deem proper, create, alter or abolish standing and special committees and appoint or remove the members thereof.  All matters other than ordinances and resolutions may be referred by the President to some proper committee or city officer unless the City Council itself desires to make such reference or otherwise dispose of the matter.
