We used to have it here in Hamilton, it was called a Board of Control.

We had 4 Controllers elected at large who along with the mayor acted as an executive committee. Anything that went to council was vetted by the board of control first. They basically set the agenda.

It was done away with back in the early 80's. The system worked well, the city has been on a downward spiral ever since they got rid of the Controllers.

The Controllers tended to have the interests of the whole city in mind when making decisions, rather than what we see with councillors looking after their own turf.
