PREFACE.

The joint special committee appointed by the city council of the city of Newburyport to prepare a new Municipal Register for publication, in accordance with the recommendation of His Honor the Mayor, have attended to the duty assigned them, and submit the following pages as the result of their labors.

The compilation and revision of the ordinances, rules and orders, and other matters included in this volume, has occupied much time and attention, and the re-arrangement and condensation rendered necessary by the frequent changes in our municipal laws, as well as in the statutes of the commonwealth, since the last revision of the Register in 1869, has been attended by an amount of labor not anticipated when the work was undertaken.

The committee have endeavored to make such a compilation as would meet the wants of the city council, and at the same time prove serviceable to the citizens generally. In their efforts to accomplish this result they have sought for guidance and help from every source within their reach, and have availed themselves of the advantages derived from a careful examination and comparison of this work with the municipal codes of other cities in this commonwealth.

The committee especially desire to acknowledge their indebtedness to Edward F. Bartlett, Esq., whose advice and assistance in the preparation of these pages has been constantly sought and relied upon, and who has labored earnestly and faithfully to secure a full and accurate compilation of the laws, ordinances, and regulations, relating to the government of the city of Newburyport.
