The Charter Committee hired a professional staff to assist in the work of drafting a new charter. Val Mogensen, Executive Director of the Bureau of Governmental Research, also served as director of the Committee’s staff. Lennox L. Moak, an expert in municipal government finances, was another key member of that staff. The two memorandums shown here testify to the degree of study that went into the preparation of the home rule charter.
