178.2. In the case of the central municipality, the first three paragraphs of section 178.1 apply, with the necessary modifications, if the council composed of persons elected in the election referred to in section 121 intends to enter into a contract referred to in the first paragraph of section 178.1 during the period mentioned in the third paragraph of section 178, and if the council considers it appropriate that the contract also apply, in respect of the territory under its jurisdiction, before the reorganization of the city.
For the purposes of the first paragraph, the council concerned is the regular council or, if applicable, a borough council. However, a borough council does not have the power to make a request under the second paragraph of section 178.1 if the borough under its jurisdiction does not correspond to the borough before the reorganization.
If the contract concerned falls within the jurisdiction of the executive committee of the central municipality, the powers granted under the first paragraph to the regular council composed of persons elected in the election referred to in section 121 belong to the committee composed of such persons.
