thereafter, but in all cases before dismissal, the employee shall be given an opportunity to refute
the charges or reasons either in writing or in person before the department head.
(b) Nothing in this section shall be implied to repeal or supplant the grievance
out in this chapter which allow the appeal of discharges to the city manager or personnel
