Sec. 2.1. Powers of the city.

All powers, privileges, and immunities, not inconsistent with the provisions of this charter, possessed by the City of Midland by virtue of its incorporation as such and enumerated in Act No. 215 of the Public Acts of 1895, the former charter of the city which is hereby superseded, are hereby expressly retained by the city and shall constitute a part of the police power of the city even though not expressly enumerated herein. Further, unless otherwise provided or limited in this charter the City of Midland and its officers shall be vested with any and all powers, privileges, and immunities, expressed and implied, which cities and their officers are, or hereafter may be, permitted to exercise or to provide for in their charters under the constitution and laws of the State of Michigan, and of the United States of America, including all the powers, privileges, and immunities which cities are permitted to, or may, provide in their charters by Act No. 279 of the Public Acts of 1909, as amended, as fully and completely as though those powers, privileges, and immunities were specifically enumerated in and provided for in this charter, and in no case shall any enumeration of particular powers, privileges, or immunities in this charter be held to be exclusive. The city and its officers shall have power to exercise all municipal powers in the management and control of municipal property and in the administration of the municipal government, whether such powers be expressly enumerated or not; to do any act to advance the interests of the city; the good government and prosperity of the municipality and its inhabitants, and through its regularly constituted authority, to pass and enforce all laws, ordinances, and resolutions relating to its municipal concerns, subject to the constitution and general laws of the state and the provisions of this charter.
