The 1954 was not a perfect document despite the improvements that it made in the governmental structure of the Crescent City. By 1960 the Charter Advisory Committee, comprising the same individuals who had drafted the original law, was acknowledging fifty-six proposed changes in the law. The Committee did not, however, deem any of the proposals important enough to warrant an election. There were several charter amendments on the ballot in the following year (1961), but all went down to defeat.
