HARVARD COLLEGE LIBRARY
RECEIVED THROUGH THE BUREAU FOR RESEARCH IN MUNICIPAL GOVERNMENT
This publication comprises the ordinances of the City of Hartford revised to October 1st, 1907. The revision of the ordinances is official. The charter is not official and is a compilation made originally in 1906 by Arthur L. Shipman, corporation counsel of the city at that date, and subsequently brought to date with the assistance of Lawrence A. Howard and James W. Knox of the Hartford Bar. This volume is published under the authority of the Court of Common Council of the City.
The compilers trust that, for practical purposes, this publication will be found far more convenient than reference to previous revisions, fragmentary pamphlets containing the ordinances and the various volumes of special laws.
It cannot be expected that this publication is entirely free of errors and omissions. The work, however, has been carefully done, and it is hoped that the volume is as free from defects as are most works of like character. The new arrangement of sections, with head notes or catch-words attached thereto, the compilers feel sure will be regarded as an improvement over previous arrangements of the charter and ordinances.
