2. Consult when appropriate with the relevant borough president, other borough commissioners of the department and community boards.

b. Nothing in this section shall prohibit the commissioner of environmental protection from assigning as borough commissioner under this section an employee who is also assigned to a position in the department pursuant to subdivision f of section 2704 or subdivision a of section 2706.
