CITY OF MILWAUKEE
BEING CHAPTER 184, LAWS OF 1874,
As amended by subsequeut acts of the Legislature to and including the
the Legislature of 1895.
The resolution instructing the City Attorney to revise the Charter further instructs him to insert annotations of Supreme Court decisions which construe or refer to Charter provisions. It is believed:no case of this nature has been omitted. There has been no attempt to make a general digest of all decisions of our Supreme Court involving questions of municipal law, but notes of some decisions construing charters of other cities having charter provisions similar to ours, and some decisions upon matters of general interest which"inay assist city officers in the performance of their municipal duties, have also been inserted.
The notes have further been made with special reference to construction of the Charter provision under consideration rather than to the general questions of law involved. All citations of Wisconsin decisions are to the top poging in the reports.
I have not attempted to go back of the work performed by City Attorney Elliott in 1889. Its accuracy has been proved by six years of daily use, and numerous conflicts in the courts.
