Charter Of The City Of Cleveland  


Chapter 1. Powers Of City

Note: The original City Charter was adopted by the electors at a special election on July 1, 1913, certified to the Secretary of State on July 4, 1913, and effective January 1, 1914. Dates appearing in parentheses after a section heading indicate the effective date of such section either as an amendment, new enactment or repeal.

The inclusion of the Charter of the City of Cleveland in this publication of the Codified Ordinances of the City of Cleveland has suggested the desirability of providing chapter arrangement and titles for the respective sections of the Charter, and accordingly these have been supplied by the editor, although they do not appear in the Charter as adopted and amended by the electors.
