Worsley Jr. termed "tentative conclusion," that the county again "has outgrown its form of government." The report divided its recommendations into three fields: Executive Branch, Legislative Branch and County Finances. The committee called for: Placing the executive power in a full - time official elected by the voters of the entire county for a four - year term with the title, Council President. Placing under the Council President a County Manager who would be a professionally qualified official appointed by the Council President and confirmed by the council. He would serve at the pleasure of the Council President. The heads of the various county departments would be appointed in the same manner but their duties would be supervised by the County Manager. While council members said little about the recommendations, Council President David Scull said he was disturbed by the proposal to give the full- time council president the authority to appoint all department heads. He said he was concerned that if this were done the appointment of department heads "would be thrown into the political arena".

The committee's recommendations in the legislative field would have all legislative power granted to the council of seven part - time members, presided over by the Council Fvesi- dent who would have no vote except in case of a tie. The committee said it had not reached a decision as to whether the members of the Council should be elected at-large or from districts. Noting that the present state constitution requires at - large voting, Scull said that the recommendations by the Charter Review Committee would be looked at again later next year following the drafting of the new State Constitution. A minority opinion was submitted by committee member David MacDonald and also by Lewis B. Sims.. The council indicated that following receipt of ttie final recommendations of the Charter Review Committee and public hearings by the committee and itself, the recommendations would be placed on a ballot in the fall of next year for a decision by the voters. Adoption would bring the most sweeping revision of the county charter since its adoption in 1948. In another action of great local interest, the council voted to declare "Extra Legislative Session 1967 Bill 1" (Fire Bill) suspended pending a referendum vote on the matter. Known as the "fire bill' the legislation sought to centralize functions, purchases and financing procedures of the county's 16 fire departments. Strongly fought by the volun- .eer firemen of the county, the bill was petioned to referendum according to a certification by the Board of Elections who said hat signatures of more than 5 jei cent of the registered va'ers lad been filed by the opponents of the measure. The bill will be voted upon at the next regular or special dec- Counfy 4-H Entries Take More State Fair Awards Frederick Couflty 4-H . club three.W^ribboiB In the Breed- members took honors in the fin* al fudging events as the largest state fair in Maryland history closed Monday.
