Record of the organizational meeting of the Charter Committee held on January 3, 1951. The body met a total of ninety-four times, sometimes more than twice a week, until its final session on May 12, 1952. Total expenditures by the Committee during its seventeen months of deliberations amounted to just over $54,000 out of the $76,000 appropriated by the Commission Council. The draft that they ultimately presented to the Council was truly a bargain!
