Object Name Report
Scope & Content These papers include letters from the City Solicitor's office, stating the Council's responsibility regarding increasing the City budget after a vote has been approved, the final decree regarding the law suit brought forth by Marjorie Raymond and others from Peabody against the Board of Assessors for the city, petitions to the city against buying bonds to deal with the budget deficit, and the case between Daniel Edward Gorman and others against the City of Peabody regarding the teacher's pay increase.

The previous papers dealing with the city budget appear to be included with these School Committee papers because they are related to the city's stand with its budget and previous petitions to keep on a "pay as you go" status. Cases against relying on bonds or other means of borrowing were made in previous years and were used in the case between Gorman and Peabody.

At various points, beside the columns of the printed court decisions and on the back of pages various notes were made naming the justices involved in the cases, the attorney for the teachers and the petitioners to the court.
