Official Synopsis of
for the Government of the City of
Omaha' as Framed by the Charter
Convention, now Submitted to the Vot
ers for Their Approval or Rejedtion.
The charter convention herewith sub
mits the home rule charter which It has
dratted for Omaha. In framing this char
ter we have endeavored to Insure to the
people at Omaha the. management of thtlr
own city affairs through an efficient gov
ernment fully accountable, and directly re
sponsive to every well founded popular
demand. We have sought to do this by
retaining the commission plan of govern
ment, with more centered responsibility,
and by providing an effective control by
Initiative, referendum, recall and im
peachment, at the same time reducing the
play ot polities by means of nonpartisan
nominations and merit appointments and
prAmotlona under civil service.
White steadfastly guided by the prin
ciple of home rule, we have also kept In
view the Greater Omaha of the near
future, sure to Include the adjoining city
of South Omaha and other suburban ter
ritory, and the mergr so far as feasible
of corresponding 'city and county offices.
Looking toward the dreater Omaha, ah
elastlo scheme ot revenues baa been
adopted, permitting ot increases neces
eary from time to time to meet enlarged
demands. The present combined ma
chinery of the city and county for assess
ing property for taxation and for a Joint
office of treasurer has been continued,
and the foundation laid for a similar
merger of city and county auditing of
fices, and city and county election
bureaus whenever proper enabling legls
latlon Is had safeguarding home rule by
making these offices elective by our own
people. In the same way, regarding the
city and county as one household for
local self-government, provision has been
made for them to unite in the erection
and maintenance ot workhouses, reforma
tories and similar Institutions that will
prevent duplication and needless expanse
to the taxpayers.
The ohapter relating to the granting ot
franchises, and regulation ot public
Utility service conforms, we believe, to the
experience lessons of this and other
cities and the best thought on that sub
Jtct. It provides fdr short term fran
chises, optional purchase without pay
ment for franchise value, full regulation
of rates and conditions of service and.
above ail, a prerequisite vote of approval
by the people for every franchise granted
It makes the preaent, .occupation tax a
minimum, materially reduces existing
rates for water and light and places on
(tho street railway the full burden of
paving and maintaining the entire street
space it occupies. '
For the first time in the history of
Omaha a definite limit la fixed upon the
saloons, prohibiting the issue of new
licenses in the residence districts and pro
viding against a transfer Into Omaha of

To secure stability of government, how
ever, the terms are made to overlap so
that half ot the membership ot the
council is renewed every two years.
Chapter III, atnnlclpal Depart
ments. Affairs ot the city under control of the
ccunctl are divided for administrative
purposes, as now. into seven departments,
with power to arrange and rearrange un
asstgned activities. The council selects
Its president, who Is to be mayor ani
svperlntendent ot the Department ot
Publlo Affairs, and a vice president,
who is to be superintendent ot the
department of accounts and finances
and to serve as mayor In the event ot
tho tatter's absence or disability. The
procedure proscribed for the council
in the enactment ot ordinances insures
full publicity and ample opportunity and
time for remonstrance. The commis
sioner In charge, of each department is
to appoint, and to be responsible for, all
tits subordinates tn his department, sub
ject to civil service requirements, with
the exception of certain specified posi
tions to be filled by the whole council,
suoh as city attorney, corporation coun
sel, city clerk and city engineer.
Chapter IV. Local Improvement.
The system of making local improve
ments, whose cost Is to be assessed to
the property benefited, is greatly simpli
fied for the purpose of expediting such
work when desired by the resident prop
erty owners affected. Improvement dis
tricts may be created and work ordered
by the council within a certain radius
of the city hall. Outside ot that area,
the council may create the districts and
order the work, subject to a protest
right ot the owners of 40 per cent of the
abutting frontage, and the materials
may be designated after according a
hearing to the property owners. The
most important change Js tho require
ment of open specifications for paving ma
terials, and prohibition of the specifica
tion ot materials from any particular mine
or factory, and the sole application ot
the standard quality and endurance tests,
the design being to secure lowest bids by
free competition, and to minimise the
so-called paving promotion and its large
train ot evils.
Chapter V. Department of Parka

The administration of parks and boule
