All records, property and equipment whatsoever of any such commission, board, department or office or part thereof, all the powers and duties of which are assigned to any other board, commission, department or office or part thereof by this Charter, shall be transferred and delivered intact to the commission, board, department or office or part thereof to which such powers and duties are so assigned or as directed by the Council.
The Council may appoint an acting Manager who shall serve only as administrator without powers of appointment or removal until such time as a Town Manager is hired, who shall have the temporary powers of appointment as in § C6-1.

As vacancies occur by expiration or otherwise, appointments or election of successors shall be in such numbers and for such term as shall most expeditiously bring all offices and terms of office of the Town into accordance with this Charter.
