Shall obsolete language in Article XXII, Section 2 of the Charter of the City of Glendale regarding subordinate officers of the public service department be repealed?

Impartial Analysis from City Attorney Scott H. Howard
The present Charter provides that the council shall, by ordinance, provide for all necessary subordinate officers, employees, clerks and laborers for the public service department and, until other provision is made therefore, the existing ordinances providing for the said subordinate officers, clerks, employees and laborers, shall remain in force. The amendment proposes to delete such section.

Arguments For Measure CharterAmendment-12
The present Charter requirement that council by ordinance provide for all necessary subordinate officers for the department of public service is vague and seemingly unnecessary in that it singles out the department of public service, yet, Council has authority to provide for all necessary subordinate officers for all departments in the City by the authority granted to it in Article VI, Section 4 of the Charter.
