I: generally believed last night
tl at the Common Council would refer
the petition t.. t.hc Committee on Ordi
nance- at its meeting Monday night.
It will the a he the duty of that boclv
to teport. within thirty days, some
ot dinanee covering the petition. Should
the Council adopt this ordinance, then
the measure would go to the Hoard of
Aldermen for concurrence.
In this election the voters would de
termine whether or not the city's form
of government should be charged. At
the same time electors \ ould select
members ot a charter commission. In
c-Nent that the system of government
should be. changed, then this commis
sion would work out a plan which
would l;nve to be ratified by the voters
arid presented io the General Assembly
tn 1 Since the plan -quid not be
submitted to the Legislature until
it could hardly bjfome effective until
1921. thereby resulting in a delay of
three ytrars.
