I strongly agree with this. I think it also cannot be emphasized enough that the
secretary simply cannot chair the meetings(unless the secretary is a council
member). This is because the secretary is not elected and, from my experience
chairing meetings anyway, would inneffectually keep the council on-topic and
moving through the agenda.

Pretty much anything else can be assigned to the secretary however.
