McDougall Mayor City of San Luis Obispo FORM OF GOVERNMENT By Pam Voges, City Clerk The Town of San Louis Obispo was first incorporated on February 19, 1856. The legislative body was governed by five Town Trustees. Three years later, the offices of the Town (City) Clerk, City Attorney and City Finance Director were created on May 10, 1859. T. H. Bouton was appointed Town Clerk. In another action at the same meeting, the Town Council adopted an ordinance (0-9) making disorderly conduct in public punishable by law at a fine of not less than $10 per offense nor to exceed $100 per offense. By ordinance adopted in 1881, the Mayor and Common Council required written permission be obtained to carry any sick or dead person found to have smallpox or other contagious disease through city streets. If found guilty, the deed was punishable by a fine of not more than $200 or by imprisonment for 10 days. With a city of less than 3,000 persons, the City reorganized by order of a general election held February 13, 1884, and reincorporated by election of February 26, 1885. It set forth its government to be vested in a Board of Trustees (consisting of five members); the Clerk (also ex -officio Assessor), a Treasurer; a Marshal (also ex -officio Tax and License Collector); and Recorder, the Board, Clerk,. Treasurer and Marshal were elected officers each serving two-year terms and the Recorder was appointed by the Board. Salaries and fines were also established as follows; City Clerk - $60 per month, plus as Treasurer, received 1 % of all monies collected; Marshal -$100 per month; City Attorney $41.66 2/3 cents per month; Recorder- $35 per month; City Engineer - $6 per day; Policemen- $60 per month. Board members received no compensation and were expected to attend all meetings. A fine of $5 was levied if no reasonable excuse was provided. Board members or other persons guilty of disorderly conduct at a meeting were fined $10 per offense. By Ordinance No. 23 (July 6, 1886). It also became unlawful to gamble or smoke opium in public buildings or on city sidewalks punishable by a fine of $25 or 25 days in jail. On August 20, 1906 (Ordinance 142), the Board of Trustees declared it unlawful to tether.or hitch any horse to a city trash receptacle. Such act was punishable by a fine of not more than $15 nor less than $5 or imprisonment for two to five days. By City election held April 9, 1906, a Board of Freeholders -elected to study and revise the City Charter. There were to be 15 Freeholders and they were required to be registered voters of the City for least five years. An election to consider those amendments was held December 22, 1906, with the Freeholders Charter going down to defeat. The Freeholders Charter was again considered by special election held September 12, 1910, and approved. The new Charter provided for an entirely revised form of.government consisting of the following elective officers: A Mayor, City Clerk, four Councilmen and four School Directors. (The previous Board of Trustees now being the Mayor and Council.) The Mayor and Council Members were to be elected at large and have equal voting powers. Terms of office were two years for Mayor and City Clerk and four years for Council Members. The Chief Officials were a City Treasurer, Attorney, Collector, Engineer, Chief of Police, Street Superintendent, five library Trustees and Fire Chief appointed by the Council and their duties determined by the Council. The Mayor of the Council acted as President and the Council elected the Vice—Mayor. All ordinances and resolutions (except those concerning appropriations) were confined to one subject clearly expressed in the title. If not in the title, the ordinance was void except for the titled portion. Legal notices had to be published in the local newspaper, the San Luis Obispo Breeze. Other provisions mandated that no final action be taken of any special department if a Council Member was absent from a regular meeting. The 1910 Charter provided for almost all of the powers of city government known today concerning land purchases, condemnations, maintenance of city streets, building and construction regulations, taxes, sales of public property, licenses and fees. (Public concerts had to be free to the public.) Regular Elections were to be held on the first Monday of April of the odd -numbered year. It also first provided salaries for the Mayor and Council. The Mayor received $600 annually and each Council member $500 annually. School Directors each received $2.50 for each regular meeting (not to exceed $10 per month. The Board of Trustees (still so named as the Charter had not yet been ratified by the State) adopted traffic regulations on November 28, 1910. The Board placed speed limits of no more than one mile in. six minutes on major downtown streets and limited motor vehicles, mules, horses and teams to a speed no greater than one mile in four minutes in all other sections of the city not specifically designated as major or arterial streets. On September 28, 1911 the Commissioner of Finance and Revenue (Mr. P.A.H. Arata) submitted the city's annual budget projected for 1912. It totaled eight pages with total expenditures of $89,542.94. $44,000 was for all costs connected with the library and schools. The remaining $45,000+ included all salaries and operating expenses for administration, public safety and the public works departments. (75 years later, the city has an adopted annual budget of over $24,000,000 and that figure no longer includes schools). Minor amendments to the Charter were adopted by election held February 10, 1913, to provide for a Police Court; April 2, 1917, grading of streets and protecting shade trees; April 4, 1928, a two-year elected term of office for Mayor and four-year elected term of office for City Clerk and; April 1, 1929, limiting tax levying. On April 3, 1933, an election was held to revise the Charter to provide that the elective officers would be the Mayor, four Council Member, the City Clerk and five School Directors. The Mayor was also given veto power of resolutions and ordinances. By election held April 7, 1941, the Charter was amended to add a Park, Playground and Recreation Department and provided for establishing the method of public work projects including its contracting and advertising procedures. The election of April 5, 1943, provided that the Council would regulate the salary of the City Clerk and the employment and compensation of any Deputy or Assistant City Clerk and all employees in the Office of the City Clerk. Minor amendments were again approved by voters on April 2, 1945, to include provisions to adopt the State Employees Retirement Act and to revise the tax levy and on April 7, 1947, to again amend the tax levy and public work provisions. The Council also first provided for referendum of ordinances. On November 19, 1951, the City Council (by Resolution 1064) created the Office of Executive Secretary. This action set in motion what would ultimately become a new kind of government for the City, i.e. the "Council -Administrative Officer" form of government. At this time the Executive Secretary was appointed by the Council with duties and responsibilities as assigned by the Council. The salary was set at $500 per month. Richard D. Miller was first hired to the position, later.retitled the Administrative Officer and served a total of 27 years. The City Charter was revised in its entirety by election held April 4, 19551 providing for a new municipal form of government, i.e. "Council -Administrative Officer." The elected officers were the Mayor, four Councilmen, and five members of the Board of Educations. The City Clerk became an appointed position by the Council. The Mayor and Council Members terms remained at two and four years respectively. The Mayor's compensation remained at $600 per year and Councilmen $500 per year. Ordinance publication required 30 days to become effective subject to referendum. The City Administrative Officer duties and removal were delineated in detail and his powers expanded. The CAO was defined as the administrative head of government including being empowered to appoint all city officers except for the City Clerk -Assessor, City Attorney and City Treasurer; those officers being appointed by the Council. His duties included responsibility for the budget, assessment roll, purchasing and all laws and provisions of the Charter, ordinances and franchises. In addition, the Board of Education also became elected officers and each member received $5.00 for each regular meeting attended (not to exceed $20 per month). The control and administration of the San Luis Obispo Public Library was vested in the Board of Library Trustees consisting of five members appointed by the Council and serving four—year terms. Powers and duties of the Library Board would be prescribed by ordinance adopted by the City Council. The Park and Recreation Commission and Planning Commission were also established. By election of June 7, 1966, the Charter was amended to provide that the General Municipal Election would be held the third Tuesday of April in the odd - numbered year. The following General Election of April 18, 1967 increased the Mayor and Council member salaries to $250 per month for Mayor and $150 per month for Council member including reimbursement of travel expenses and providing that future salary amendments be set by the electorate. The Charter was next revised by election held June 20, 1972, to allow the Council (by ordinance) to transfer or consolidate the City Library operation and financing to another governmental agency (later to be consolidated with the County on November 20, 1972). By election of November 5, 1974, the Charter was revised to change the election date again to the first Tuesday after the first Monday in March in the odd -numbered year. It also included revised language to stagger Council terms of office -Council members four-year terms, the Mayor a two-year term. Additional administrative language was added by election of March 4, 1975, regarding violation of ordinances and public work contracts. In 1976, a Charter Committee was appointed by the City Council and a complete rewrite was proposed. It was defeated at the General Municipal Election held on March 8, 1977. The Charter Committee again viewed the Charter and this time only proposed specific amendments. The three were adopted by Special Election held June 6, 1978. The municipal government was amended as the "Council -Mayor -Administrative Officer" form of government. The Administrative Officer would be responsible for the implementation of all Council policy and the administration of the affairs of city government that the office controlled. This includes the appointment of and removal of all department heads except the City Clerk and City Attorney. Another amendment limited the Mayor and Council member terms to no more than eight years in succession. Another amendment established the Personnel Board. The voters also approved an initiative submitted on the ballot to require voter approval of any territory (land or property) annexed into the city. (This Charter amendment was later overturned on December 28, 1983 by the State Court of Appeals.) In March of 1981, the Charter was amended to revise the general municipal election date to November of the odd -numbered year in order to consolidate with the School and Special District elections. It also provided for lengthy ordinances to be published in synopsis form, requiring two readings by Council, the second a public hearing. Ordinances still require 30 days to become effective and are subject to referendum. The final Charter amendment increased the salary of the Mayor to $500 per month and Council members to $350 per month. The Charter was again amended by General Municipal Election held November 5, 1985, to clarify partial terms of office for Council members. It also provided that subsections of ordinances could be amended without publishing the entire ordinance and required that development of annexed land is consistent with the General Plan. Ballot issues adopted in June 1986 provided a change to City Charter to allow Council members to set their own salaries and another to prevent building of on -shore oil facilities in the City of San Luis Obispo. The Council subsequently appointed a 5 - member review committee and accepted its recommendation to increase the Council. City Growth Since 1900, the population of the City has continually increased although at changing rates over time. The period of lowest relative increase within the City's post - 1900 history was 1930 (8,276 pop.) to 1940 (8,881 pop.), and the largest growth occurred from 1940 (8,881 pop.) to 1950 (14,180 pop.). 1986 shows the City's population to be at 38,205 with a total expected increase to 58,200 (based on Growth Management Regulations) in 2025.

Additional administrative language was added by election of March 4, 1975, regarding violation of ordinances and public work contracts. In 1976, a Charter Committee was appointed by the City Council and a complete rewrite was proposed. It was defeated at the General Municipal Election held on March 8, 1977. The Charter Committee again reviewed the Charter and this time only proposed specific amendments --three were adopted by Special Election held June 6, 1978. The municipal government was amended to be known as the "Council -Mayor -Administrative Officer" form of government. The Administrative Officer would be responsible for the implementation of all Council policy and the administration of the affairs of city government which the office controlled. This includes the appointment of and removal of all department heads except the City Clerk and City Attorney. Another amendment limited the Mayor and Councilmember terms to no more than eight years in succession. Another amendment established the Personnel Board. The voters also approved an initiative vii submitted on the ballot to require voter approval of any territory (land or property) annexed into the city. (This Charter amendment was later overturned on December 28, 1983 by the State Court of Appeals.) In March, 1981, the Charter was amended to revise the general municipal election date to November of the odd -numbered year in order to consolidate with the School and Special District elections. It also provided for lengthy ordinances to be published in synopsis form, requiring two readings by Council, the second a public hearing. Ordinances still require 30 days to become effective and are subject to referendum. The final Charter amendment increased .the salary of the Mayor to $500 per month and Councilmembers to $350 per month. The Charter was again amended by General. Municipal Election held November 5, 1985, to clarify partial terms of office for Councilmembers. It also provided that subsections of ordinances could be amended without publishing the entire ordinance and required that development of annexed land be consistent with the General Plan. Ballot issues adopted in June, 1986 provided a change to the Charter to allow Councilmembers to set their own. salaries and another to prevent building of on -shore oil facilities in the City of San Luis Obispo. The Council subsequently appointed a 5 -member review committee and accepted its recommendation to increase the Councilmembers' salary to $400 per month and the Mayor to $560 per month. CITY GROWTH Since 1900, the population of the City has continually increased although at changing rates over time. The period of lowest relative increase within the City's post -1900 history was 1930 (8,276 pop.) to 1940 (8,881 pop.), and the largest growth occurred from 1940 (8,881 pop.) to 1950 (14,180 pop.). 1986 shows the City's population to be at 38,205 with a total expected increase to 58,200 (based on Growth Management Regulations) in 2025. viii '-Election of April 15, 1969 Electior zf March 4, 1975 Candidates for Mayor _ n i , ,s for Myour Whelchel 2821-45.6% Danley 2647-32.9% Schwartz 3359-54.4% Schwartz 5403-67.1% Total 6180 Total 8050 Council Candidates 498-3.3% Council Candidates Total Blake 3271-28.1% Blackston 312- 2% Graham 2926-25.2% Gurnee 3897-25% Mathiese 1432-12.3% Hensley 961- 6.2% Miles 710- 6.1% Jauisse 395- 2.5% Rogers 739- 6.3% Petterson 3481-22.3% Wheeler 2542-21.9% Schneider 2970-19% Total 11620 Turner 774- 5% Webre 2782-17.9% Election of April 20, 1971 Total 15572 Candidates for Mayor Election of March 8, 1977 Schwartz 5299-90.3% Candidates for Mayor Cook 569- 9.7% .
