The mayor or other chief executive officer of the consolidated municipality shall supervise and direct the transfer of all personal property, books, papers, vouchers, or other documents belonging to the participating municipalities, to the proper officers of the new government. He shall cause a complete inventory to be made of all assets, real and personal, received by the new government.
