SUPPORT RETENTION OF COUNCIL-CITY MANAGER FORM OF GOVERNMENT IN JANESVILLE
The Janesville League of Women Voters reached consensus in March 1981 after studying various forms of city government which included council-city manager; aldermanic-city manager; aldermanic-mayor. We agreed that desirable qualities in city government are accessibility, honesty, and efficiency. A representative, responsive government that plans for the future is essential. It was agreed that Janesville’s city government has possessed those qualities considered desirable, and therefore, no change is necessary. The council-city manager form of government should be retained and because Janesville had a full-time city manager, a full-time council is not necessary.
