PREFACE
This publication was prepared pursuant to the direction of the

General Assembly contained in the General Appropriation Act of

July 16, 1917.

The necessity, at this time, of such a publication is apparent. At

the session of the General Assembly of 1915 the borough laws were

codified in an act known as “THE GENERAL BOROUGH ACT."

The main purpose of this act was to produce a systematic, harmo-

rious, and simplified arrangement of the borough law. Approxi-

mately two hundred and seventy-five acts of Assembly were re-

pealed by this act.

Being substantially a re-enactment of the existing law, the source

of the various provisions of the code is of immeasurable value to the
student of this branch of the law. With this information the reader
may readily ascertain the various adjudications theretofore made
by the courts and trace the history of the legislation.

In addition to the provisions of "THE GENERAL BOROUGH

ACT,” this publication contains in the appendix, the laws on sub-

jects excluded from the code, arranged by chapters. Such for in-

stance are chapters on Municipal Claims, Indebtedness, Public

Health, State and State-aid Roads, etc. This appendix also contains

the acts passed at the sessions of 1915 and 1917, which were not

included in the code.

After each section and clause of the General Borough Act has

been inserted a note, giving a citation of the act from which the
section or clause in question was drafted, and noting such changes
as were made from the original act. The act has also been fully
annotated with such cases as have been decided since its adoption.
The acts published in the appendix have been annotated with all
the leading cases.

A table of cases, table of acts, and an analytical index have been
added after the appendix.

For convenience in indexing, and to facilitate use, new section

numbers, in parenthesis, have been inserted at the beginning of

each section and clause running consecutively through the publica-

tion.

We will appreciate if the reader will call to our attention any

errors or omissions.
