Q A grant was presented to the board and approved in the form of a contract, as reflected in the minutes. May the mayor relinquish the grant without the approval of the city council?

A Any approval of a contract by a municipality requires an action of the board or council. Likewise, any action to terminate a contract entered into by a municipality would necessitate an action of the board or council, subject to mayoral veto.
