(c) Interference with administration. Except for the purpose of evaluating the Manager's performance or for the purpose of inquiries and investigations under section 2.06, the Board of Trustees or its members shall deal with Village officers and employees who are subject to the direction and supervision of the Manager solely through the Manager, and neither the Board of Trustees nor its members shall give orders to any such officer or employee, either publicly or privately.
