Section 11-44E-22

Powers of city; acquisition of property; enumeration of powers in chapter not exclusive.

The city shall have all the powers granted to municipal corporations and to cities by the Constitution and laws of this state together with all the implied powers necessary to carry into execution all the powers granted. The city may acquire within or without its corporate limits for any city purpose, in fee simple and any lesser interest or estate, by purchase, gift, devise, lease, or condemnation, and may sell, lease, mortgage, hold, manage, and control such property as its interests may require; and except as prohibited by the Constitution of this state or restricted by this chapter, the city shall and may exercise all municipal powers, functions, rights, privileges, and immunities of every name and nature whatsoever. The enumeration of particular powers by this chapter shall not be deemed to be exclusive, and in addition to the powers enumerated therein or implied thereby, or appropriate to the exercise of such powers, it is intended that the city shall have and may exercise all powers which, under the Constitution of this state, it would be competent for this chapter specifically to enumerate.
