Phone 3674 Money for all purposes at law cost BALTIMORE — Anne Arunfiel county expects to have it: new county-manager form of government ia operation by the flrst of the year: A citizens' committee which sponsored the.plan is now screening ap-. plications for .the job. Under the law, the county, business manager becomes the 'chief executive' officer of the county and will'take .over supervision of. the administrative functions hitherto exercised by the eight - member Board of County Commissioners. He is appointed by, and is to be responsible • to the board, which remains the policy - determining agency of the county government. The plan had its Inception in the minds of a'small group of citizens who were dissatisfied with what they considered a clumsy and inefficient system of government in the county. Leaders of the. group were the same seventeen men who now comprise what is known as the Committee for the Reorganization of the Governmental Structure of Anne Arundel County of which E, Churchill Murray, an insurance executive, is chairman.' in the beginning, their work consisted mainly, of'propagandizing the idea. By early 1947 they had the seven members of .the'county's legislative delegation on their side. Members of the Board of County Commissioners, as- Murray phrased it, "were unenthusiastic." • A bill, framed from a model of the National Municipal League, passed the Legislature at' the 1947 session. The law was to become effective on June 1 of that year. Strong opposition developed, . however, and a petition for a referendum, rendered ie act Inoperative. The referendum squeezed through the general election last month by a: plurality, of 395 -votes. Enemies of the measure had their greatest strength in the northern areas of. the county, -particularly the fringe of communities that make' up the southern suburbs of Baltimore. Anne Arundel's county - manager government differs -from that of Montgomery county in that-it. is not a home-rule or charter system. /The -county' lawmaking body will continue to be the State Legislature The Board of County Commissioners will remain -fee highest-governmental agency of the' county, although most of its executive and administrative functions will as vested in the county manager. Tho county business manager is to be appointed by the -commissioners for an indefinite term, and the selection "shall be ir.ade solely oa Oe basis of his executive and administrative qualities."His 'salary is to be fixed by the the applicants are men from other parts of the country who we now scrying as municipal or county managers. The law stipulates that an applicant need not be n. resident of the county, although he is required to live there during his tenure. Murray also cautions citizens against "expecting a miracle over . -It will take a good many months for the system to begin operating smoothly,:" he says. However, he expects the majority of citizens to be pleased with the new government, once it has had a chance to function.

The act places under his "direct supervision all departments, offices and agencies or the county government now or hereafter imposed upon the jurisdiction of the Board or County Commissioners." He is given authority to appoint and remove officers and employes of the county, Is to supervise the budget, will serve as comity purchasing 'agent and -will take over the work now done by the county road engineer. The two offices of budget supervisor and road engineer are abolished by .the act. Murray emphasizes that the county is seeking a'career man for the office-^a man who has devoted his life to the development of a career commissioners are till o ..~.— -- "Committee of Seventeen" for screening The appointment is expected to be made around the first o' January.
