Maintaining 28 Wards


The bill proposes an amendment to the Charter that would repeal the Charter sections which provide for the reduction of the Board of Aldermen from a body of twenty-eight aldermen to a body of fourteen aldermen and, in lieu thereof, enact new provisions to maintain the Board of Aldermen as a body of twenty-eight aldermen.
