Sec. 9.15. Constable.*

------------

Editor's note--The office of constable was abolished with the adoption of Ord. No. 995, enacted Dec. 22, 1980. The provisions of § 1 of said ordinance are codified as Ch. 2. Art. XV. § 2-280. of this Code. The ordinance did not provide for amendment of this Charter.

------------

The Constable shall have like powers and authorities in matters of civil and criminal nature and in relation to the service of process, civil and criminal, as are conferred by law on constables in townships. He shall have power also to serve all processes issued for breaches of ordinances of the city. The only compensation of the Constable shall be the statutory fees of that office, and an accounting of such fees shall be made to the city in the manner prescribed by state law or in any rules which may be established for the regulation of the conduct of the Municipal Court by the Council. The bond of the Constable shall be that required of constables in townships and the cost thereof shall be paid by the Constable.

The City Manager may from time to time appoint any police officer or officers approved by the Municipal Judge as additional constables or to fill any vacancy which may occur in the office of Constable. The cost of the bond of any Constable so appointed shall be paid by the city. Whenever a police officer shall serve as Constable, the statutory fees which he shall receive in such capacity shall be paid into the city treasury as provided in Section 9.9 of this charter.
