No form can he cheaper, not even coun- cilmanic government, than the straight commission fonn. When the mayor and immediate staff in liotk counciimanic aud straight commission forms are compared, the latter is tho cheaper; the same thing applies to both .of tho departments of .public works and public utilities.
