Jay Kincaid, Cranley’s campaign chief who’s moving to City Hall with him, said Monday they’d have to look into whether they technically needed a vote or if Cranley could just halt the work himself.In case Kincaid hasn't already, I suggest he read Section III of the City Charter. The Mayor doesn't have the authority to overturn an enacted ordinance.
In other words, he really doesn't have a much power as people think he does.
The Power is vested in the City Council and to a lesser degree the City Manager. The Mayor can't really do a whole hell of a lot without Council. His power is more in blocking Council actions via the veto or controlling what they can vote on.
Kincaid might brush up on his reading pretty quickly.
