The Mayor shall be the chief executive and administrative officer of the Township. He shall:
Enforce the Charter and ordinances of the Township;
Supervise all of the departments of the Township government;

Whenever a vacancy exists in any office required by the Charter or ordinance to be filled by the Mayor with the advice and consent of the Council, or whenever a permanent appointment has not been made and there is no holdover incumbent, the Mayor may temporarily fill such position, in the absence of any contrary provision in the Charter or ordinance, by appointing an acting officer, including the designation of himself as an acting director. Such appointee shall have all of the functions, powers and duties of the office until it shall be filled permanently.

Require each department to make an annual and such other reports of its work as he may deem desirable;
