Common Ground Found On Charter Plan By Claudette Durocher The two camps that were at opposite ends over the manager council referen- dum last year have found common or take a few boulders of dis- agreement in the charter overhaul proposed by State Sen. Richard W. Leonard. Views Presented Representatives of both sides were among those who spoke at a public hearing in City Hall last night in favor of a bill sponsored by Leonard to install the strong mayor aldermen form of government here. About 30 attended the session was conducted by Sen. Creeiey Buchanan of Amherst. Also present for the joint legis- lative hearing was .1. Clayeau of Hudson and a number of Nashua representa- tives. None spoke in outright oppo- sition to the bill. Most of the approvals, though, were laced with recommendations for im- provement or clarification. Differences of Opinion Subjected lo a difference of opinion were provisions calling for the mayor lo be elected for four years instead of two; elec- tion of the aldermen-at-large for six years instead of four; cre- ation of the post of administra- tive assistant to the mayor; and establishment of a centralized purchasing agency. Also the subject of prolonged discussion was whether t h e school, police and library de- partments should retain their autonomy in selling s alaries and their respective boards lo make departmental appoint- ments. Frank B. Clancy, -chairman of the citizens committee which successfully, fought adoption of the manager council form of government last November, was the first to speak. He said various members of his committee had discussed the bill with Leonard before its in- troduction and noted how it was drafted from the state stalule oullining a model slrong mayor- aldermen charier for local adoplion. The proposed charter change; Clancy said, would add lo the authority of the mayor thus placing upon him for the first time since 1913, when the present charter was adopted, the re- sponsibility for really running the city. Conditions Cited But Clancy conditioned his approval of the bill with these recommendations: a clause requir ing the mayor lo be oh the job on a full-time basis because this provision could prevent some worthwhile candidates from running for mayor and be- cause with the appointment of an administrate assistanl a full-lime mayor might not be necessary. a saving clause in the bill to exempt the consti- tution of the school, fire, police, library, Board of Public Works and cemetery departments from the well other departments which were set up by special legislative act. Though the bill does not exempt these departments, Clancy said, it was the intent to have these departments re main as they are. Clancy said he was inclined to agree with Hep. Louis Rec- ord Jr. that a six-year term for an alderman-at-large wa too long a term. Record; 'that., the legislature had' a bill'-tp" give the governor four-year'term .and he ques tinned a six-year term for an alderman-at-large. Plan Questioned Kep. Agenor Belcourt ques lioned Ihe plan lo preserve Ihi fiscal aulonomy of Ihe school police'and library departments "When the taxes go up, thi mayor and the aldermen ge Ih'e he said, "but the; don't have much to say aboti the .school, police and librarj budgets." Collective Bargaining Bill For State Workers Passes Morris D. Stein, chairman of e charter study commission hich has put the manager- uncil plan to referendum last ar, said he personally favored e bill and hailed it as a "step the right direction.'. The plan may not be perfect, commented, but "no legisla- ve, no group of geniuses can iticipate pitfalls five years lead. That's why we have gislatures and Boards of Al- ermen to make changes they are needed." A part-time mayor may have een fine in 1913 when the popu- tion was smaller, Stein said, ut the size of the city now ntitles it to a leader who will :vote himself full-time to run- ng the city. There is nothing mj'sterious bout having alderman-at-large erve for six he said, dding that United States seha- rs' now serve' for six years ith congressmen elected for vo years. "It's a method til veling off transistory i commented. Stein said the Rev. Msgr ames D. McGreal, a chartei ommission member, also fa nred the bill. Other members of mission who spoke in favor o ie bill were James D. LeVan nd Alderman-at-Large Bert and J. Bouchard.
