Except when required for reasons of public interest, Rental mentioned in the preceding paragraph shall be established by Entrusted Manager in accordance with the provisions of a bylaw. In such circumstances Entrusted Manager shall obtain the approval of said ordinary local public body in advance for said Rental.
The chief executive or the relevant commission of the ordinary local public body may, for the purpose of the proper management of the public facilities entrusted, demand from Entrusted Manager a report on the status of the affairs and accounting concerning said public facilities, field inspection said affairs and accounting, or give necessary instructions to Entrusted Manager.
