|Object Name||Report, Administrative|
|Scope & Content||
Two copies of the Report of committee in regard to whether Peabody should become a city. The committee lays out the various reasons to become a city; the main reason is that as a town Peabody has "no central centralized authority, no individual responsibility [...]." The other reasons include in Town Meetings "a comparatively small percentage of qualified voters, and that frequently appropriations are rushed though Town Meetings by combinations of interested parties, and by very objectionable methods."
The committee was formed at the Annual Town Meeting in March of 1914. The committee has budgeted $50.
This includes a proposed City Charter.
